Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes with Cranberries

These Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes with Cranberries are so good I think I could eat them as a dessert! And these are a much healthier version than those covered in brown sugar and marshmallows.

Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries

Sweet potatoes contain an unbelievable amount of beta-carotene.  Just one cup of sweet potatoes contains 214% of your daily nutritional value of vitamin A! It also contains 52% of your vitamin C needs and 34% of vitamin B6. There are also 6.6  grams of dietary fiber which actually helps with blood sugar regulation. In addition, sweet potatoes contain nutrients that are anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories.

If you make your own dried cranberries then you are adding to the health benefits of this dish. Cranberries also contain anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. In addition, they contain anti-cancer nutrients. Including these in your diet can help prevent such cancers as breast, lung, colon and prostate. And as most women know, cranberries can be used in the prevention of urinary tract infections due to their proanthocyanidin (PAC) content which makes it harder for bacteria to latch on to urinary tract lining.

So, you can’t go wrong with these Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
