Spice Sweet Pototoe Fries Recipe
Here is a great alternative to unhealthy fried fries. White potatoes tend to quickly raise your blood sugar whereas sweet pototoes don't.
This recipe is great to go with your favorite bar-b-que or hamburger.
You can spice these fries up anyway you like giving you a sweet and spicy treat.
Be sure to test your blood sugar after trying these.
Sweet potatoes also pack a bigger punch health wise since sweet potatoes have rich in fiber, Vitamin A and C, and B6.
You can find many ways to prepare this healthy tuber.
I especially love these fries during the summer months since you can find sweet potatoes all year round.
Be sure to use a low sodium, low sugar ketchup with these, better yet eat them alone.
2 medium sweet potatoes, washed and cut (lengthwise) into strips (1/3 inch on each side)
1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
