Sweet Potato Casserole made Low Carb and In a Mini Dutch Oven Pot!

Posted by Daisy Sun on

Love your mom’s casserole but don’t want the calories? Here is a recipe that will satisfy your craving and reminisce of your mom, while also being low carb! To make this with an extra health benefit, we are also utilizing a cast iron pot! 

Cooking Made Healthy

Most commonly used material for cooking is stainless steel. Although a great option for easy cleaning, stainless steel is not the best option when it comes to conducting heat and cooking your meals evenly. This may seem like a minor issue; however, this means that the food being cooked is not being cooked evenly. This may potentially result in overcooked, burnt or undercooked food, which can lead to adverse health effects. Cast iron on the other hand, conducts heat evenly and retains the heat a well. A wonderful option to take a look at is RJ Legend’s Mini Dutch Oven Pots, which come in a set of 3! These pots feature a 100% natural cast iron material with an enameled coating that also makes it easy to clean. What more could you ask for!
