Let’s be serious, who doesn’t like fries? You say “Fries?! I wish, but I need to eat healthy!”
Well, believe it or not, these fries are actually healthy AND tasty! Baked sweet potato fries are a good alternative to regular potato fries. While they are good on their own, adding garlic and spices takes them to another level.
