Baked sweet potato fries
Baking your fries instead of frying them is a healthier option.
It will cut out a lot of the fat that comes with fried chips, which means fewer calories.
Drizzle your fries with some olive oil before popping them in the oven. Using sweet potatoes instead of the white potatoes usually used to make fries adds extra nutritional value.
Nutrition specialist, Lisa Moskovitz, explained the nutritional benefits of both white and sweet potatoes in a 2017 interview with Men’s Health.
She says while white potatoes contain more iron, potassium, and vitamin C, sweet potatoes are “higher in fiber, calcium, and vitamin A”.
Try different seasoning
Salt is usually the go-to seasoning for fries, but there are healthier options. Paprika, thyme, cumin, and rosemary are great spices and herbs to try.
You can also add some fresh garlic.
Tomato sauce and fries go together like peaches and cream. But the store-bought sauce is often loaded with sugar. You can combat this by making your own dip for your fries. You will be able to control how much sugar you use.
