Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse. They’re full of potassium, calcium and  magnesium. They are a healthy starch option to add to any entree because they are relatively low in calories, packed with fiber and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Crunchy, salty, sweet or spicy, these fries are easy to prepare and much lower in fat than the fast-food favorite.
