Serve Sweet potatoes daily because they are easy on your budget & because they have lots of vitamin C, fiber and beta-carotene. Use them to prepare oven fries, oven fries, mashed potatoes, & stews or just pierce a whole sweet potato with a fork, wrap in a damp paper towel, and microwave for four to five minutes. The fiber helps lower blood sugar by slowing the formation of glucose. They are such complex carbohydrates, sweet potatoes can help weight loss and are great for diabetics as well.
Cooking Spray has become my best friend. In addition to using for stove top cooking, I have now discovered that if I spray it on things like oven fries, potato wedges, chicken strips, and other food items that are meant to be fried instead of baked, the cooking spray will crisp them up and leave them moist. It is a healthier and still tasty way to serve my kids' convenience foods.
Cooking spray. If you prefer to make it yourself, you can add oil oilor any other oil to a pump sold by Pampered Chef.
