Baked Sweet Potato Fries

French fries are usually fried to within an inch of their lives and made with not-great-for-you white potatoes. Sweet potatoes have 400% more Vitamin A in them than white potatoes. They also have more Vitamin C, fewer calories, more fiber and few net carbs than a white potato, despite having more sugar. By using sweet potatoes and baking them, you can enjoy your baked sweet potato fries with less guilt!
