Do you love french fries?

16 Feb

Want a healthy alternative to greasy french fries? Try out sweet potato fries, not only are they healthy, they’re actually really delicious!

Fresh Benefits

Sweet Potatoes are a wonderful high-energy food choice to add in your meal plan.  Some of the benefits include:

  • Loads of vitamins and minerals, especially high in vitamins A & C.
  • Lots of antioxidants to help fight those free radicals.
  • Sweet potatoes are a complex carb with low glycemic index.  Fuel food, not crash food.

 

They aren’t hard to make, and all you really need is a sweet potato and some seasoning!

This is my favorite seasoning to use, makes them spicy.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Coat 2-3 sheet trays with cooking spray.

Cut sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch strips.  Toss with olive oil, adding enough to evenly coat all the fries.  Combine the spices and toss them into the bowl and mix to coat.

Spread the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets, being sure not to overcrowd. Bake until the sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 20 minutes.
