The finished product. Toasty, seasoned and fantastic!

Well, the blanket of snow on the ground in the Washington, DC area has melted. Boo hoo – that means I and thousands of other people will be commuting to work this morning.

Oh well, at least, we got to witness such a beautiful snowfall yesterday. It was very refreshing and gave me a lot of time to cook.

With all the snow and the weather getting more frigid – my food cravings come out in full! The two foods on my naughty list, for the most part, are potato chips and French fries.

And, these are way not good for you. So, it is awesome to find healthy alternatives to these sinful treats = when you get a craving. Hello sweet potato fries!

Last night, I just ate of plate of these for dinner. Simply awesome and they took no time at all.

Before they were in the oven!

You will need: 2 sweet potatoes, 2tbsp of garlic powder, 3 caps full of olive oil {maybe more – you want to lightly coat each potato piece}, 1 tsp. onion powder, 1 tsp. red pepper, salt and pepper to taste. 

Take a pretty sharp cutting knife and chop your potato pieces into strips that look like old fashioned fries. This might take a little elbow grease. Sweet potatoes are pretty thick.

Once your strips are chopped up, pour them into a bowl and add the olive oil, garlic, onion, red pepper, salt and pepper – and stir these ingredients in. You want to make sure all the pieces are lightly covered.

Preheat oven to 400. Line a cookie tray with foil – and dump your fries onto the lined tray {easy cleanup}. Pop these tasty treats into the oven and let cook for about 20 minutes.

Friends and family will love these – treat them and yourself to something healthy and way lower in fat. Not to mention, this is paleo and gluten free!
