Most often they are deep fried and covered in salt and gravy or cheese. Not good for our health or our waistlines.
Would you believe there are fries that are healthy and taste wonderful too?
They are fries made from one of the the "super" foods, Sweet Potatoes.
They are extremely easy to make and full of nutrients and fibre. Baking them in the oven and using olive oil makes them healthy choice.
My family prefers them over fast food fries.
You can stop pinching yourself now..you are not dreaming!
