Low Sugar Sweet Potato Soufflé

Friends! Can you believe Christmas is only one week away!? I just love this time of year and it’s going by way too quickly. I’m one of those that leaves the Christmas tree up until mid January because I want to savor every last drop of the season. This week, I’ve been doing my best to slow down in the mornings and connect to what’s most important to me.

Often I get my priorities mixed up and this is a great time to reconnect and just be still. I always feel much more grounded when I do that because I have a different perspective, one that sees the bigger picture and the tiny blessings all at the same time.
