Sweet potato
Smoked paprika

That’s quite literally it, a simple recipe for a rainy day. I love them personally, switching it up with regular fries every so often.

Are they healthier than regular fries?

Regular fries and sweet potato fries are, both deep fried. Which adds an unhealthy factor to either type you choose.

In terms of nutrition, the sweet potato fry is superior. Being a source of vitamin A as well as being a more complex carb for the body – great for the gymnists.

If you were to oven bake these instead, the sweet potato is considered the healthier option.

Are sweet potatoes good for weight loss?

In this case with fried sweet potato fries, no. The fats used in cooking oils promote weight gain.

If you were, however, to oven bake these; they will promote weight loss. Sweet potato fries are very satiating, so they also help keep you full.

What do they pair well with?

Sweet potato fries go well with other fried goodies, including:

Cauliflower bites
Crispy chick’n
Dips such as guacamole or hummus
Falafels and Falafel wraps
