Guilt-Free Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes are a bright and beautifully colored root vegetable that a lot of people don’t eat enough of. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin C, and potassium. They also are an excellent source of many other vitamins and minerals, contain antioxidants, and are a good source of fiber.

Sweet potatoes come in many colors, and several studies have shown purple sweet potatoes have more than three times the antioxidant power of blueberries!

There are many different ways to cook sweet potatoes, but these simply sweet potato fries hit the spot.
