FACT: Sweet potato casserole consists of healthy ingredients ONLY.

This perfect combination of good sugars (molasses and marshmallows), great protein (candied pecans), and a solid amount of veggies will hold you over for life.

OTHER FACT: Sweet potato casserole is one of the only foods IN THE WORLD that won't make you gain weight if you eat lots of it.
