Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes are nutrient-dense root vegetables that come in a variety of colors.

They’re high in fiber and antioxidants, which protect your body from free radical damage and promote a healthy gut and brain.

They’re also incredibly rich in beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A to support good vision and your immune system.

Sweet potatoes are versatile and can be prepared in both sweet and savory dishes, making them an exceptional carb option for most people.

  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut then into long strips, 1.5 cm thick. Just like French fries.
