Sweet Potato Fries

If you’re looking for new ways to get veggies, you’ll love these!

As you may know, we weren’t always besties with our greens! If this is news to you, you can read more about how and why we made the switch and that’s why we know it can be challenging to get your share and why we’re always whipping up new veggie dishes to help make it easier for you to get more veggies!  That’s why we made these veggie recipes last week– our Strawberry and Citrus Salad with Avocado  and our Baked Zucchini Boats and our Smoked Paprika Zucchini Chips and recently we’ve gotten several requests from our Paleo pals and meat-eating friends 🙂 for veggie and meat side dishes.  We don’t eat ham, ourselves, so we had our awesome intern, Angelina make this green bean and ham recipe—and she tells us it’s delish! (For our Paleo peeps, we don’t have to tell you to go organic, etc, as you know what to do! 🙂 )

Our latest creation? A delish recipe for fall but also so delish, it works at any summer BBQ or grilling outing– Sweet Potato Fries! We’ve used onion powder in this recipe and some other scrumptious spices to help jazz it up while keeping it healthier. 😉 Onion powder is a great substitute for onion salt—it’s got all the flavor but none of the sodium. Let’s dig in!
