Food Swap Friday – Sweet Potato Fries vs French Fries

French fries… okay, yes, they are good… but they are bad. So bad for you.

They are loaded with saturated fat, simple carbs, and sodium.

A better option is fiber-packed Sweet Potato Fries! I wasn’t always crazy about them, but I started to come around and now I love them… and I find that, because they are sweeter, I need less of them to feel full and like I satisfied my craving.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of calcium, vitamins A and C, potassium, fiber and beta carotene. They are also low on the Glycemic Index, making them a good choice for Diabetics.
