Guilt-Free Comfort Food: Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Mmm… fries.

You’ve got to be crazy if you don’t crave the crunchy, salty comfort food at least every once in a while. But as you well know, oil and salt drenched french fries are not exactly on the top of the healthy foods list.

But that doesn’t mean you have to avoid all fries at all costs. Because with these oven-baked sweet potato fries, you get all the awesomeness of french fries… without the guilt.

Because not only do sweet potato fries taste amazing (seriously!), they’ll give you an insane amount of beta-carotene (or Vitamin A), vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, calcium, and more. They’re packed with fiber and can help stabilize your blood sugar (and appetite) for hours.

Mashed Cauliflower Recipe: The Healthier (and Better Tasting!) Mashed Potatoes

I used to be the world’s biggest mashed potatoes fan.

There was just something about the creamy deliciousness of the ultimate American side dish that was so comforting… so satisfying… so good.

But that was until a couple of weeks ago, when I finally tried to make mashed cauliflower for the first time.

I’ve tried to make mashed cauliflower before from Paleo-approved recipes and it turned out a little blah, so this time I tried to tweak the recipe to fit my taste buds.

The result was magnificent. 

Not only did the dish live up to all my comfort food taste and texture expectations, it didn’t leave me feeling heavy afterwards like mashed potatoes always would… and it was way healthier.

So try this mashed cauliflower recipe at home… you won’t regret it!

Then, a few years ago I realized that when cooked right, brussels sprouts are fricken amazing. And an added bonus, they’re easy, quick to make and full of vitamins and minerals.

These days, I’m pretty much obsessed with this roasted brussels sprouts recipe and make it anytime I get the chance.

Try it for yourself and you’ll see why… and be sure and let me know what you think!
