What’s a Holiday Celebration without a Walnut Sweet Potato Casserole?

Posted 12/09/2014 | By HealthCorps

It’s actually a showcase dish for Thanksgiving, but this delish side dish is the perfect accompaniment to any holiday party of festive family meal. And recent research suggests that including walnuts in your diet may help to support learning skills and delay Alzheimer’s disease. Courtesy of our partner, The California Walnut Board & Commission, enjoy this dish that layers yams, pears and crushed walnuts!

Remember that this is a “treat” side dish, with about 277 calories/serving, so consider it a special indulgence and skip dessert at this meal!
