I love sweet potatoes and yams! Since becoming more health conscious I have switched out potatoes for them as you get your carbohydrate fill with added flavour and a ton of nutrition. When I was growing up my Dad used to tell my sister and I that there were tribes in South America that survived on sweet potatoes alone! Well I use them quite often, these yam fries are a hit at my house!
