Paleo Sweet Potato Recipes – Fries and Chips

Paleo Sweet Potato Recipes #Paleo #SweetPotato #recipes

While sweet potatoes may not be much superior in nutritional value to regular white potatoes, they are still a clean source of carbohydrates. And in particular, if you have autoimmune issues, then skipping the nightshades like white potatoes is a good option.

It’s easy to make your own sweet potato fries and chips with the Paleo sweet potato recipes we have below, but remember that it’s still not great to overeat sweet potatoes in any form (and it can be easy to overeat them when they’re cooked in delicious fats and sprinkled with salt).
