NUTRITIONIST APPROVED SWEET POTATO FRIES

French fries are one of the most delicious and top 5 worst foods that any of us can ever eat. They contain what is considered “bad” fats (trans fats) and  they are made out of “bad”  carbohydrates that means a higher level of blood sugar. Baking them can eliminate the trans fats but the carbohydrates and elevated blood sugar is still there.
Baked sweet Potato fries on the other hand are not only delicious but are also jam packed with essential vitamins and nutrients, contain almost no fat and actually help combat the signs of aging.
