Sweet Potatoes or Yam Baked Fries 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
If you love the taste of French fries, why not bake your own?
Did you know that sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamin E?

Sweet potatoes are good for you because they have high levels of beta carotene (the same vitamin found in carrots). Sweet potatoes are julienned and tossed with olive oil and sea salt in this super easy baked sweet potato fries recipe.

The reason you should avoid French Fries from a restaurant is because most are deep-fried in hydrogenated vegetable oil. Besides causing cancer, hydrogenated oils clog your arteries, promote heart disease, interrupt metabolic processes, and cause belly fat that crowds the organs and strains the heart. So try this baked Sweet potatoes fries recipe.


Ingredients:
3 large Sweet Potatoes or Yams
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 teaspoon of Salt
1 teaspoon of Pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne


Directions:
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Thoroughly scrub and rinse sweet potatoes. Cut lengthwise into fries.

In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, salt, pepper and cayenne together.

Add sweet potatoes to bowl with mixture. Toss them well until the oil and spices are evenly distributed.

Arrange sweet potatoes in a single layer on over a cookie sheet or glass try.

Bake for 25 minutes. Flip over the sweet potatoes and bake for another 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let stand for five to ten minutes before serving.

When done, the sweet potato fries should be golden brown and slightly crispy. If not, toss them back in the oven for another 15 minutes.

Kelowna Wellness Fair - November 2018


Wellness Tip
Food Sources of B Vitamins
B vitamins are required for energy metabolism. Good sources for most B vitamins include whole grain products such as whole wheat pasta, and whole grain breads and cereals. These foods also provide plenty of fiber and other essential nutrients. An exception is vitamin B12. It is not found in whole grains, vegetables or fruits. It is found in meat, eggs and dairy products. Thus vegetarians, as well as adults over age 50 (who may not absorb vitamin B 12 well), may benefit from foods fortified with B12.

However, all of life is made up of energy, so understanding these multi-dimensional energies will unlock the secrets to these mysteries.
