3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Sweet Potato Fries With Coconut Oil

What's frying?

One day I was watching the Dr. Oz show...or was it the Doctor's Show?  Well, it doesn't matter.  In an episode, it was said that sweet potatoes were good for us.  Immediately, I wrote down sweet potatoes on my grocery list.  I wanted to eat something good for my body.

According to the World's Healthiest Foods website, sweet potatoes contain the following:

--beta-carotene (good for the skin);
--antioxidants (which slow the body from aging);
--anti-inflammatory properties;
--fiber (good for digestion);
--potassium (good for hydration of the body);
--iron (good for the blood; to prevent anemia); and
--Vitamin C (good for immune system).

Sweet potato fries were delicious!

I bought precut fries from a grocery store.  I then bought coconut oil from Whole Foods.  Since coconut oil is expensive, I did not want to waste it.  I decided to use a small pot (pictured first).  I'd heard that coconut oil is very beneficial, too.  That's why I decided to use this oil.

I'd also heard that cooking with coconut oil does not smoke.  It was easy.  The fries cooked a lot faster, too.  I was amazed!  I just added some sea salt at the end.

--kills viruses;
--kills bacteria;
--kills yeast infections;
--reduces inflammation; and
--prevents cancer.

Well, thanks for reading this 
quick blog entry.  
I hope you enjoyed it.

What about you, my readers? Have you ever eaten sweet potato fries? Would you make fries with coconut oil? Would you add other ingredients? I hope you would consider these fries. It's a wonderful snack.

May God bless you with His peace and wisdom, my beloveds.

  1. I LOVE sweet potato fries in coconut oil! They are awesome. It also works great to just peel and slice sweet potatoes and place them in a baking pan greased with coconut oil- cover with foil and bake for like 20 minutes til they are tender at like 400 degrees.

  2. Angel,

    Thanks for commenting.

    I have some sweet potatoes that I hope to bake soon. They are so good for you.

    I think I would like to try baked slices, sprinkled with coconut oil. That sounds delicious!
