I take butternut squash or sweet potato put some pastured butter on it and add the secret ingredient wait for it..... cinnamon. It is ridiculously good surprisingly so. Might have to do with my love for cinnamon but the combo is just amazing.

Cinnamon is especially great when you buy it whole and use a small electric coffee grinder or whatever to grind it fresh! Make sure its real cinnamon and not cassia!

I don't do anything fancy. I just grind up some apples with a hand shredder I got at the grocery store, put in a little cinnamon to taste, a touch of honey if you want (sweeter apples usually don't need this) and a little lemon juice, maybe 1/8 tsp per apple, and once in a while, a little orange zest and ginger. I cover it with an inch of water and let it simmer until it reduces. It's usually a caramel-brown and smells cinammony. Sometimes I add some unsalted butter to give it a richer taste. I wish I could find nutmeg or cloves here.

i do that with "yam" sweet potatoes, japanese white sweet potatoes and the purple sweet potatoes (or mix n mash em cuz i can). after a workout, i churn out some SP via the pressure cooker, mash it in with cinnamon, ginger powder, some coconut milk, slab of cultured butter, and sometimes pure whey powder. its the awesome.

I take Korean sweet potatoes and cook them in homemade apple sauce. Then, I remove them from the sauce and mash them with butter, cinnamon, a little sea salt, a tiny bit of honey and Greek yogurt or sour cream. Heavenly, but definitely reserved as a post-workout treat.

Not unlike pumpkin pie? :)

Paprika is also ridiculously good on those same beta-carotene rich foods.

Nice. I do something similar but even more low-brow, if you will (a hack though it is, i suppose):

  1. open one can of plain pumpkin puree (no ingredients but pumpkin)

  2. get out cinnamon shaker

  3. as you eat the puree with a spoon, scooping right out of the can, you gradually shake some cinnamon in to the can, mixing as you go.

Sounds a bit goofy I know but understand that I wouldnt do this for a "meal." Its just my pre-lifting carbs so I'm not too too interested in the whole "lets sit down and enjoy the food" kinda aspect yknow. And eating straight out of a can takes me back to camping when i was a kid. Dinty Moore stews?

I love to eat sweet potatoes that way! Can I candy walnuts with 100% maple syrup? Or is that a paleo no-no? Saw this recipe on a paleo website.

Every 3 days, at least. I LOVE cinnamon/butter/yam.
