Cinnamon Sweet Potato Beef Stew

This time of year, I can't get enough of warming soups and stews, especially when they're as easy to make as this Cinnamon Sweet Potato Beef Stew. Adapted from my grandmother's recipe, this lighter, healthier version is made with bone broth, providing the collagen pregnant and postpartum mamas need. Using 100% grass-fed beef ensures you get anti-inflammatory, brain-boosting omega-3 fats. Don’t be intimidated by the long list of ingredients; this one-pot meal is incredibly easy and perfect for busy weekdays. Enjoy!
