Sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest foods possible. Unlike their white potato cousins they do not raise your blood sugar dramatically when you eat them. This is good news for people watching their weight and for mothers who want to serve their children healthy and tasty food.
Sweet potatoes can be sliced just like french fries and baked in the oven for a wonderful healthy taste treat. You will be surprised at how good these fries taste and how good they are for you. Slice the sweet potato into your desired shape. You will place these on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or a small bit of olive oil. Bake for about twenty minutes at 350 degrees in the oven. When they are soft in the middle you can remove from the oven and salt to taste. These make a great replacement for fries that are bought frozen and heated up.
Without all the fat and other additives you know you are serving your family a healthy food. Sweet Potatoes have many vitamins and antioxidants in them. We should all eat yellow vegetables several times a week. Making sweet potatoes into french fries, is a treat your kids will love. Only you will know how healthy they are.
