SWEET POTATO BEGINNINGS

Servings: 2

2 baked yams or sweet potatoes
2 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 apple, cored and chopped
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Peel and chop the baked yams or sweet potatoes. Combine with the bananas and apples. Mix in the cinnamon. Heat briefly in a microwave oven. Serve warm.

HINTS: Yams and sweet potatoes may be used interchangeably in this (and most other) recipes. These root vegetables are sold most of the year in your markets. Sweet potatoes usually are less moist with a pale orange skin and flesh, and the root vegetables sold as yams have a reddish skin and deep orange colored flesh. These are usually very moist. This recipe may also be served cold or at room temperature.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
