I love the slightly sweet & salty combination when you make these crispy sweet potato fries! Plus, the added bonus is that there are some great health benefits to using sweet potatoes too. They are pretty high in dietary fiber, which means they will keep you full longer & balance your gut. It also has a low glycemic index, meaning that it releases sugars into your bloodstream slower so you don’t get the blood sugar spikes as much, which is a benefit to those with diabetes (& for any of us really). Sweet potatoes are also high in several vitamins including Vitamin A, C, D, B6 & more.
