Sweet Potato Fries

While it’s the perfect time for grilling burgers, there’s a healthier way to serve them up with fries. Instead of the frozen, oven baked variety, why not try a spicy twist with sweet potatoes. Even if you're not typically a fan, give these tasty sticks a try. Packed with Vitamins A and C, potassium (you thought only white potatoes had bragging rights), and a healthy dose of dietary fiber, these sweeties are a real treat. Spicy Sweet Potato Sticks
