We love the sweet potato, a common root vegetable touted as a Super Food. Loaded with nutrition and packed with flavor, we love them any time of the year. They’re excellent in soups, stews, casseroles and as veggie patties. And,one of our favorite ways to prepare them is as baked fries. What a great alternative to regular fries. Try our recipe for Sweet Potato Fries baked in the oven with spices. This is a flexible recipe and you choose your favorite spices to add to the fries. Enjoy!

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”
— Michael Little
“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
