Give the French fries and bagged potato chips a break and save yourself some calories by baking your own sweet potato chips! Sweet potatoes are filled with antioxidants, vitamin A precursor, beta-carotene, vitamin C, fiber and potassium. It has 28% more potassium than a banana!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Serving size: Equivalent to a bag of chips

Ingredients:

3 medium-sized sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

 

Instructions:

  1. Scrub sweet potatoes and soak them in a large pot of warm water for 30 minutes
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  3. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, lemon pepper seasoning and salt
  4. Remove sweet potatoes from the pot and thoroughly rinse them
  5. Slice sweet potatoes and place them on a baking tray. The thinner you slice them, the crispier they will be, but may require less cook time. If you want softer wedge-style fries, make thicker slices.
  6. Slather the sauce over sweet potato slices
  7. Place in oven and cook for 20-25 minutes or until crisp.

 

I also experimented with carrots, and apples sprinkled with cinnamon! Play around with different fruits and vegetables and share your ideas! Maybe your ideas will be featured on my blog!
