**READ ME: Keep in mind that while all of these recipes are Paleo. If you are currently doing the whole30, you will need to leave out all sweeteners!
I know, I know...but you will be able to enjoy them soon enough. Hang in there! I promise it's all worth it.**

{ sweet potato wedges }

As you probably know, regular potatoes aren't part of the Paleo lifestyle. So, when I say we don’t eat regular french fries--you shouldn't be too surprised. Baked sweet potato fries are the new favorite side dish, along side with a grass-fed burger in this household. {bun-less of course} These aren’t quite as crispy as the the fried crap is, but they’re tasty and easy to make. Plus, you can totally switch up the seasonings and that way your taste buds won’t get bored.
*serves 2*
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • dash of cayenne pepper { can leave out }
  • 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder 
  • dash of cumin
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • any other of your favorite seasonings 

 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash, then peel sweet potatoes and cut them into small wedges. Then, place wedges in a bowl; toss with the olive oil, garlic, cayenne, cumin, salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you desire. On a foil-lined baking tray or line with parchment paper for a crisper exterior, evenly spread the wedges out.

2. Toss { not literally } the fries in the oven for about 30-40 minutes or until done, flipping the fries and tray halfway through. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce { we like 'em plain } or along side of a grass-fed burger. Enjoy!
