Hey Weight Loss Nation!

Weight Loss Nation

It’s 5 Minute Snack Day!

Boy…..Do I have an AWESOME Snack for you today!

I made Chipotle Sweet Potato Wedges with Lime, and they are Fantastic!

It’s Football Season, and ……..it’s getting close to the Post Season for Baseball. That means, I’ll be socializing more on the weekends and….it means…..being surrounded by “Trigger” Foods. 

I LOVE Burgers and Fries. Since I’ve been Living a Healthier Lifestyle, French Fries are not something I normally eat. As a matter of fact, I do not ever have fries out.

I do eat Burgers, but they have to be Grass-Fed, Organic Beef Burgers.  There is nothing wrong with eating Grass-Fed Burgers Nation!

So…..how did I come up with a solution for eating Burgers & Fries together?

I decided to find a “Fries” recipe that uses “Sweet Potatoes,” instead of “White” Potatoes, and I wanted to Bake them instead of frying them.

Voila! I am thrilled to present to you …….

Chipotle Sweet Potato Wedges with Lime!

An awesome, healthier snack that satisfies your cravings for fries.

Here’s what you need:

Ingredients

4 Medium sized Sweet Potatoes

Olive Oil

1/4 Cup of unsalted Butter (REAL Butter)

1 teaspoon of Chipotle powder

1/2 Cup of Raw, Unfiltered Honey

1/3 Cup of Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice

1 teaspoon of “Sea Salt” (Any Color)

How to Make it

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2. Peel the Sweet Potatoes

3. Cut the Sweet Potatoes “lengthwise” into about 8 Wedges per potato.

4. Brush your pan or baking sheet with Olive Oil.

5. Put the potato wedges in a large bowl.

6. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low to medium heat.

7. Whisk in the chipotle powder, honey, lime juice and sea salt.

8. Stir “A LOT.”

9. Bring to a “Simmer,”about 3 minutes.

10. Pour the mixture over the potatoes in the bowl.

11. Mix well to ensure all potatoes are covered.

12. Place wedges on the baking sheet. Single layer. Don’t overlap or touch the other wedges.

13. Bake for about 30 minutes.

14. After 15 minutes, turn the sweet potatoes over.

15. Around the 30 minute mark, check to make sure the potatoes are soft and lightly browned. If not, Keep them in till they are.

16. Take potato wedges out of oven and serve immediately.

This goes great with nothing other than a Grass-Fed Beef or Bison Burger!

Eat the Burger plain, or on Dave’s Killer Bread or Elzekiel Bread. Use Sugar-Free Ketchup and a hard cheese like cheddar.
