Ok guys, I really tried my hardest at the presentation of this dish so I hope it’s appealing to the eye because it was definitely delicious!
A for effort!
Today is my high carb day so I get to eat some of my favorite foods in bulk, like oil-free baked sweet potato fries!
🌡Preheat oven to 375 °
🍠Wash and cup up sweet potatoes into wedges
💦Place on baking sheet and sprinkle with water and seasoning of your choice (I used smoked paprika, garlic, chili & chives spice blend)
⏲Bake for 30-45 minutes depending on the thickness of your fries
I also threw together some @beyondmeat
Feisty Beef Crumbles, cooked green lentils, chopped onions, cauliflower, and kale into a skillet and made a delicious improvised combo.
Even though I love my healthy fats, I don’t usually cook with oil. Oil is very dense in calories (1 tbsp of olive oil is around 120 calories and 14g of fat) so I’d rather get those calories from nuts, seeds, and avocados.
Instead I use water or low sodium vegetable broth to stir fry my veggies. 😋
Oh yes, and here’s another great way to bake your sweet potatoes to make them melt in your mouth!
•Preheat oven to 400 °
•Wash sweet potatoes and cut them in half
•Place face down on the baking sheet
•Pour a small amount of water into the pan
•Cover the pan with aluminum foil and poke holes (for the steam to escape)
•Bake for 45 minutes or till potatoes are super soft
