Granola bars are a snacker-on-the-go’s dream come true. A deliciously healthy snack (depending on what’s in it, of course!

Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries: Indulging in a Healthier Way

Let’s face it: no matter how many times we’re told french fries are bad for us, the fact remains that they are deliciously addicting. Kids are especially fond of the salty side-dish, but when you get right to it these treats are certainly not the healthiest choice.

Potassium (great for those of you who aren’t crazy about bananas), fiber, manganese, copper and iron are all found in just one sweet potato.
