Soul food Sweet Potato French Fries

Last night I made some delicious sweet potato fries to accompany my Salmon Burger. Now even tho, Sweet Potatoes are not found on the Paleo diet, there are a lot of nutrients in them. Research has found that sweet potatoes are healthier for you when you peel the skin off.   Sweet Potatoes have a high source of dietary fiber, beta carotene, Vitamins C, and B6. When picking out a sweet potato, always go with the orange colored potatoes over the flesh. It is important to know that sweet potatoes are different from other potatoes, in that they lake saponins and lectins, which are known to increase you intestinal permeability. It is important to be cautious if you are watching your glycemic index and weight not to eat too much.

My family of four split on huge sweet potato, and we were all content and full afterward!

Peel and slice your sweet potato.

Mix all of the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.

Take a baking sheet and line with foil. Add about 1 teaspoon of Olive oil to sheet to grease. Place sweet potatoes in a large bowl with mixture and toss. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 45 minutes. Until soft, and that will all depend on how thinly the potatoes are sliced.
