Do you ever have a sweet and salty craving? I’ll raise my hand first to say, “I do!” and I know I’m not alone in this. The food industry utilizes this to their advantage, which is why there are so many processed sweet and salty snacks in our grocery stores!

This type of snack is a sure-fire way to feeling sluggish and is a missed opportunity for foods that actually make us feel amazing without losing the flavor. 

If wanting to begin eating more whole foods, one of the things that can be a real struggle is getting over eating processed foods like potato chips. I want to encourage you by saying that there are definitely real and whole food options that you can love just as much!

So let me give you a healthy option that only requires 1 sweet potato, avocado oil, and seasoning. Piece of cake. I’ve posted the recipe below and hope you’ll give them a go! We especially like them dipped in Homemade Ranch Dip.
