And I love french fries.
However as we all know they aren't the healthiest food on earth.
Enter the sweet potato fry - I'm not talking about the ones that are deep fried at restaurants - although those do have more vitamins than Mr. Regular Potato Fry - I'm talking about the homemade, baked in the oven, salty, crispy, beautiful, (healthy) sweet potato fry.
Sweet potatoes are full of potassium, fibre and loaded with vitamin A that is amazing for your skin and your immune system.
I add turmeric to mine because it is one of the healthiest spices there is - super anti-inflammatory (topic for another blog post) - but trust me, its so good for you!
So if you are craving fries and want to be healthy, make these tonight.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries
2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garlic powder
fresh ground pepper and sea salt
Preheat the oven to 400 and line a rimed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the potatoes into 1/4" slices and then cut those slices into strips to make "fries". In a large mixing bowl toss the fries with olive oil, spices and lots of salt and pepper until they are well coated.
Arrange the fries in a single layer and without overcrowding on the lined baking sheet and cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Flip them with a spatula and cook for about another 15 minutes. You will be able to tell when they are done because they will be a bit puffed up and golden brown.
Sending you sunshine, happiness and sweet potato fries love,
