Here is one of Brian’s favorite recipes that curbed his sugar appetite but is healthy!  This dish is low in sugar compared to the Thanksgiving alternatives out there. However, if you are closely watching your sugar intake because of a cancer or diabetes you can omit the maple syrup and use a cup of organic raisins to naturally sweeten this dish. If you are more the more adventurous type why have a play date with some dates?  During Brian’s recovery  I soaked organic dates in purified water for two hours. Then I would peel the plump meat off the pit and mash it into the yams. This is the more natural way to sweeten this dish:)



4 Organic Yams

1/2 cup of Maple Syrup

Organic Pecans or Almonds Soaked (1/2 cup)

Organic Cinnamon (1 tbl spoon)

Shaved Raw Ginger Root (Shave off 4 peels and dice)

Organic Nutmeg (I tsp)

Organic Raw Honey (preferably from a local Bee Farmer)


Bake the Yams in the oven at 375 for one hour. Mash the Yams and add maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger root and nutmeg. Once the batch is fluffy, slowly stir the pecans into the mix. When dishing out, drizzle a teaspoon of organic raw honey on top of each serving. PLEASE NOTE: I no longer promote the use of Agave Syrup for this recipe. Here is the skinny on agave.
