Lowfat way to make your baked sweet potato that much sweeter

My doctor has put me on a diet and one of the recipes calls for a new way to eat your sweet potato's (which i have been told is one of the best you can eat).

Bake your sweet potato as you normally would, open the top and using a fork mix/mash the meat of the potato. Then instead of adding butter or sugar or cinammon put in three spoonfuls of regular applesauce. Then mix the applesauce with the baked potato and eat. I know it sounds odd but I tried it and it was delicious!

Another great topping for sweet patooties is a light drizzle of real maple syrup. Yum! And for a little extra protein, a light sprinkle of chopped pecans.

That sounds really good, SauceMan. Maybe add a bit of cinnamon as well. I agree with Uncle Bob that it sounds like a fabulous side to pork chops!
A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

Thanks for the idea, sauceman, I always look for new healthy ways to cook sweet potatoes. We love them here.
