Raw Sweet Potato “Fries” with Chipotle Mayo

Eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean giving up some of your favorite foods. I used to love to order sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo. But my body did not love eating them! I felt heavy, bloated and like I had been sedated! The deep frying plus all the saturated fat in the mayo completely obliterated any healthy benefits that the sweet potatoes were offering. The potatoes offered in this raw food recipe are a little more chewy than crispy but great! And the “mayo” is even better than the original unhealthy version!

Sweet Potatoes are a nutritional power house. High in vitamin A and vitamin c, they are also loaded with fiber. They are excellent immunity builders and also help balance blood sugars. Adding these wonderful tubers to your diet provide a great healthy way to snack.

    Have you ever tried cooking them an airfryer? Very good/hard to beat

      But I think that an air fryer cooks at much higher temps, thus not raw. Cheers!

    How do you remove the starchy flavor?

      You soak the sweet potatoes, rinse and let them dry a bit again before starting. This should also help making them a bit more “crisp” due to getting rid of the starch.
