Enter the nutrient-dense sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A and beta-carotene and are naturally anti-inflammatory.

If ordering these, ask about preparation and steer away from those fried in regular vegetable oil. They’re extremely simple to prepare at home, too.

Ingredients:

  • 3 long, medium sweet potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil, melted
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into even widths and lengths.
  3. Toss in a large bowl with the oil and spices.
  4. Lay evenly on a cookie sheet so that the fries can cook uniformly.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes and then toss so the other side can cook.
  6. If needed, add more spices and oil.
  7. Cook for 15 more minutes, or to desired crispness.
