Sweet Potato Fries!!

I have come to LOVE Sweet Potatoes.  I have them almost everyday especially if I do a tough workout in the morning they are a great Pre or Post workout food paired with a good protein. I usually work out really early in the morning so I'll just grab a banana or an egg muffin before I workout. Then I'll do Sweet Potato and Eggs or something like that normally after my workout in the morning.
I tried Sweet Potato Fries a few months before I strated Whole 30 and I hated them!! I was trying to be hopeful about Sweet Potatoes because they are so good for you.  But, I just couldn't do it for some reason, not sure if it was the recipe or if my taste buds have just changed so much from doing Whole 30.  

I really love This Sweet Potato Fry recipe.  They are delish and my husband and family will eat them too!!

What you will need:
3 Sweet Potatoes, washed, and cubed into chunky pieces with skin on
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tsp minced garlic (I love garlic so I always use at least 2 tsp)
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
Sea salt
Preheat Oven to 425 
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well
Pour out and spread onto a baking sheet, make sure they are not touching and bake for approx. 20-25 minutes (making sure to flip at least once)

Also great to pair them with a "Naked" burger :) So good!

I also tried these Sweet Potato Chips recently!!! Mmmmmm....I love them as long as I don't burn them! :)
A couple other ways I like to cook sweet potatoes is just to simply bake them or put them in the microwave :) and add clarified butter and cinnamon. Or I will dice them up and cook them in Coconut Oil on low-med until tender and a little crisp on the outside.  I will either add salt and pepper or cinnamon.
What are some of your favorite ways to Prepare Sweet Potatoes?
