My resolution to practice more healthy breakfast foods during this Whole 30 has not worked out yet. My husband usually makes breakfast, and he did make me Whole 30 safe scrambled eggs and sausage (from the butcher) for breakfast but I did not branch out and try my own. Monday night when he is at school I will work on something for “breakfast for dinner” night here.
Jacob didn’t like the eggs, Keith didn’t like the sausage, so there were a lot left over. I had some more of breakfast for lunch and snacked on fruit while deciding on what to do for dinner. Of course nothing was defrosted so I made a giant salad with baby spinach, strawberries, grapes, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, and balsamic dressing. It was wonderful and I may make the same thing for lunch today. My loving husband noted nothing was defrosted and made the boys pizza for dinner. I was not even tempted (it was frozen pizza after all) but I was still a little hungry and after shuffling around decided to make myself sweet potato fries for an evening snack.
This is a quick and easy snack. I need to make homemade mayo to dip them in, but last night I simply seasoned the nicely and went without a dip. What I love about these sweet potato fries is that they are baked not fried, and are a filling alternative to carb-y greasy snacks. The sweet potato fries are quick and easy to make, and most people will always have the ingredients in their house. All that is needed are sweet potatoes, olive oil, and spices. Which spices you use can make each batch totally different. Sometimes I like regular salt and pepper, sometimes I like a spicier chipolte, and last night I went for my favorite Old Bay Seasoning I think it makes everything better.
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (or desired spices to taste)
- preheat oven to 425F. Wash and peel sweet potatoes.
- Cut sweet potatoes quarters lengthwise, then cut into quarters again, creating strips.
- toss the sweet potatoes in the olive oil, and lay flat on a baking sheet.
- sprinkle the fries with seasoning before popping in oven for 15-20 minutes. pull out and shake pan halfway through cooking time.
