sweet enough

salty sweet

My Whole 30 voyage continues. It’s been a whole week! Things were a little rough last week as I had some virus that was going around, but overall it’s been kind of easy. Already being in the habit of cooking every day helps immensely.

There aren’t many Whole 30 approved starches, but sweet potatoes are one of them due to their nutrition and high fiber content. I’ve always loved sweet potatoes, so baking them into sweet, salty fries with a hint of cinnamon seemed perfect.

It’s getting cooler, go ahead and turn your oven on…

printer-friendly version

1 medium sweet potato
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the sweet potato into 1/2-inch slices, then cut eat slice again into 1/2-inch sticks so you have “fries”. Toss the sweet potato sticks with olive oil, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Place on an even layer on a parchment lined baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite dip or spread!
