Health Highlights:

Most holiday meals leave us feeling sluggish and maybe a little guilty, but there is a silver lining to this tasty Thanksgiving treat. Check out some of the health benefits that this casserole contains:

  • Sweet Potatoes– Though they are “sweet,” these vegetables still offer plenty of nutrients. Due to a low glycemic index, sweet potatoes can be helpful in maintaining energy and controlling blood sugar, which is helpful for everyone, especially those with diabetes.
  • Orange– The fiber, potassium, and vitamin C in oranges help support heart health. Increasing potassium intake can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Nutmeg– Nutmeg can act as a sedative, and helps with inflammation, muscle pain, arthritis, and more.
