Sweet Potato Fries
 William and Susan Brinson

Compared with regular fries, sweet potato fries appear to be much healthier. But except for sweet potatoes’ extra vitamin C, A, and lower glycemic rating, the two are nutritionally very similar.

So for the healthiest cooking option, always bake instead of fry—you’ll cut fat by at least 50% and reduce calories by a third.
