Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

October 20, 2012  |  Food

I was craving for some good ol’ carbs and decided to make a baked sweet potato fries dish for myself. Sweet potatoes are healthy with loads of nutrients and is very yummy. However baking potatoes tend to raise their GI as compared to boiling them. So we should keep this to a once in a while treat.

I googled around for some simple recipes (I like ‘em simple) and found this particular one which incorporates curry powder and sounds really simple. I kinda overcooked them the first round and realized that I cut the potatoes too thinly but they still taste really good, albeit a tad dry. I’ve updated the bake timings in the recipe below, they should work.

My working out and dieting side have been going on quite well. My weight initially increased after I started the workouts, but have since gone back down to the pre-workout weight so I am very happy about it. This means that I am starting to lose more fat while gaining muscle. Visually my body is also cutting in and I am physically stronger. Let’s see what happens in next few weeks.

Alright’s I should stop blabbering on, please enjoy the recipe! :)

Yours truly,
Dionis
