Sweet potato 'fries' with homemade sugar-free ketchup🍟🤤 Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite sources of carbs as they have a low glycemic index/don't spike your blood sugar as they are dygested, absorbed and metabolised far slower compared to other types of carbs/. They are also very low in antinutrients and high in fibre, vitamins and minerals. They're also high in antioxidants that protect your body from free radical damage and inflammation. Sweet potatoes have beta-carotene, which is later converted by the body into the active form of vitamin A, they are also high in vitamin C, Calcium and Magnesium. 🍠🍠💪💯 Since vitamin A is fat-soluble vitamin, it can only be absorbed if consumed with healthy fats, this is why I cook my sweet potatoes and rice in grass-fed butter or ghee💚. My diet is relatively low in carbs, but when I do eat them, I make sure they're from the best sources.👌 Ingredients:
•1-2 sweet potatoes, chopped in wedges
•3-4 tbsps melted grass-fed butter or ghee
•1tsp of oregano, 1tsp.basil,1tsp. thyme and coriander; salt to taste.
Preheat oven to 170°C .We start by mixing the potato with the spices in a bowl, then we put the wedges on a cooking sheet. We then pour over the melted butter evenly. We bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the potato is soft inside and a bit crispy on the outside. -Meanwhile, in a small bowl, we pour some organic tomato paste. We then mix it with xylitol, oregano, powdered garlic, salt to taste. We mix well and add about 2 tbsps of water. We mix again/the tomato paste soaks the water pretty well and the taste is not so strong/.🍅
