Sweet Potatoes or Yam Baked Fries

Description:
If you love the taste of French fries, why not bake your own?
Did you know that sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamin E?

Sweet potatoes are good for you because they have high levels of beta carotene (the same vitamin found in carrots). Sweet potatoes are julienned and tossed with olive oil and sea salt in this super easy baked sweet potato fries recipe.

The reason you should avoid French Fries from a restaurant is because most are deep-fried in hydrogenated vegetable oil. Besides causing cancer, hydrogenated oils clog your arteries, promote heart disease, interrupt metabolic processes, and cause belly fat that crowds the organs and strains the heart. So try this baked Sweet potatoes fries recipe.


Ingredients:
3 large Sweet Potatoes or Yams
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 teaspoon of Salt
1 teaspoon of Pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne


Directions:
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Thoroughly scrub and rinse sweet potatoes. Cut lengthwise into fries.

In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, salt, pepper and cayenne together.

Add sweet potatoes to bowl with mixture. Toss them well until the oil and spices are evenly distributed.

Arrange sweet potatoes in a single layer on over a cookie sheet or glass try.

Bake for 25 minutes. Flip over the sweet potatoes and bake for another 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let stand for five to ten minutes before serving.

When done, the sweet potato fries should be golden brown and slightly crispy. If not, toss them back in the oven for another 15 minutes.

Wellness Tip
Bean Power
Beans, also called legumes, are inexpensive and quite filling. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommends eating them several times each week. Red, black, pinto, or kidney beans all pack a nutritional punch. One-third cup of cooked beans has only 80 calories, no cholesterol, lots of complex carbohydrates, and little fat. They are also a great source of protein, full of B vitamins, potassium, and fiber. Experts believe that eating beans may reduce blood cholesterol, a leading cause of heart disease.

Recipe
Pam's Tuscan Kale Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Kale has a history of being a pretty green vegetable that you would see on the side of a plate as a garnish, or hidden in a soup or stew. It has not been popular as a vegetable in its own right. However, kale is making a come back as a delicious food that people can't get enough of. Kale Salad and Kale Pasta are but two of the favorites in my family.

Let's look at the high nutritional value of kale. One cup of chopped kale has approximately 34 calories, 2 grams of protein, and more vitamin C than an orange! It is a rich source of iron and calcium. It is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for brain health, and boosts heart health. It also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and Folate. These carry powerful cancer protecting antioxidants.

Kale tends to have a bitter taste unless it is prepared correctly.Below is a recipe that tastes good.
