a great nutritional choice

Sweet potatoes are a root vegetable and packed full of nutrients. They are a great alternative to regular potatoes. Sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin B, Vitamin C, and they are a great source of antioxidants! But it doesn’t end there, maple syrup is also packed full of antioxidants and a good alternative to processed sugars. Pure maple syrup is a naturally occurring sugar and a much healthier choice!

This is a perfect side dish for any occasion, and with Easter right around the corner, this is on our menu for sure!
