Smashed Sweet Potatoes:

This Smashed Sweet Potatoes recipe is part of our core-plan and is a tasty way to get antioxidant rich foods into the body.  Low-glycemic sweeteners are highlighted in this dish along with good fats and antioxidants.  Makes a fantastic party dish, especially for Thanksgiving where it can replace traditional mashed potatoes which offer no real health benefits and often contain toxic ingredients.

One could also substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato and the recipe comes out very similar.  Different individuals like more stevia while others love the recipe without any stevia.  Some like more salt than others so be sure to use these ingredients to your personal taste preferences.

Dr Jockers Comments: 

Sweet potatoes have up to three times the amount of antioxidants as regular potatoes.  Granny smith apples are a quality, low-glycemic sweetener. Cinnamon helps our body to stabilize blood sugar by de-inflaming the cell membranes and enhancing insulin receptor activity.

I like to use coconut oil as it is loaded with medium-chain triglycerides that boost immunity, brain function and metabolism. Stevia is 100 times sweeter than sugar and has absolutely no effect on blood sugar control.  Pink salt is pure and unprocessed and it contains up to 84 trace minerals.  For an active, healthy individual this is a great food choice.
