Are you craving a decadent treat that won’t blow your resolution to eat healthier totally out the window? Consider cooking up some Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries for a delicious change of pace.
When you use sweet potatoes instead of the traditional white tubers in the preparation of your fries, you gain definite benefits. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber, which helps to stabilize your blood sugar and makes you feel full for longer as well as leading to better cardiovascular health. In addition, sweet potato fries are high in beta-carotene, which is an excellent source of vitamin A. As a result, your immune system and red blood cell production both get a boost, and cellular development is supported. Finally, the potassium in these fries helps to regulate your blood pressure and your ability to efficiently metabolize foods.
The problem with traditionally prepared sweet potato fries is that they are cooked in a large amount of hot oil. That’s not good news for your waistline, your blood pressure or your heart. However, your air fryer drastically reduces the amount of oil necessary. Moreover, preparation takes place faster, and cleanup is virtually effortless.
Best of all, you will love the results. When you remove your Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries from the appliance, they will be golden-brown and aromatic. Let them cool for a couple minutes, and then take a bite. You will discover that they are perfectly crisp outside and tender and flavorful inside. When something is this delicious and nutritious, you might never want to go back to greasy fries made from white spuds.
