Sweet Potato Fries. It's hard to find someone who doesn't like fries. Piping hot potatoes dipped into cool, tangy ketchup is an inviting combination which has made them a much loved junk food in many countries. In more recent years, sweet potato fries have become popular too. But we all knows fries aren't good for us. The potatoes are often coated in a gluten-based flour or batter, fried in processed oils, and served with ketchup made with refined sugar or high fructose corn syrup and chemical additives. Instead you can make healthy fries at home that taste delicious, provide comfort and satiation, and also deliver you the tremendous healing benefits of potatoes and tomatoes. Today's recipe is for sweet potato fries, but you can use any kind of potato. Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Ketchup Ingredients: For the fries: • 2 large sweet potatoes • pinch dried onion powder • sea salt to taste Serve the fries with the ketchup and enjoy.

Carrots may not sound like the most exciting dish, but these roasted carrots will have you gobbling down an extra serving, and vowing to make this veggie side for dinner on a weekly basis. Sure, you can eat carrots raw. You can saute or steam them, or add them to a stir fry. We think carrots are delicious, no matter how they’re prepared. But roasting carrots brings out a sweetness and a depth of flavor that these root veggies don’t normally bring to the table.

We coat our carrots in a healthy flavoring blend of balsamic vinegar, which lends a sweet, earthy taste, extra virgin olive oil, one favorite cooking oil for its versatility and heart healthy fatty acids, sunflower seeds, fresh thyme, which compliments carrots perfectly, and a dash of salt and pepper. And you can feel good about enjoying these carrots with lunch or dinner, as they are packed with beta-carotene, a carotenoid that promotes eye and skin health.
