Want to reach for something you enjoy? Let’s be honest eating during the holiday season can be overwhelming and stressful. You don’t know how the food is made or how it will make you feel.

This recipe for sweet potatoes in the oven makes eating during the holiday season easier. Just chop up the sweet potatoes, add a few spices, and pop in the oven.

Over the years, I’ve learned to take back the control of what I put in my body. We need to recognize that there are going to be foods that we don’t like. So how can you plan ahead and make sure that you have something you actually enjoy?

This can become a game changer when going to events and family gatherings. You can show up and actually enjoy spending time around family and friends instead of focusing on the food or how not to eat the food. You already know there is something that you will enjoy.
