Restaurant-Ready Sweet Potato Fries- Paleo?

I'd have to say… not so much.

One of our local lunch places, which does fantastic salads, sides of steamed veg and plain, broiled chicken breast, offers a 'side of sweet potato fries' as an option…

Restaurant sweet potato fries

Yes- they're the same tuber that we athletes eat (or yam, depending on where in the world you live) BUT- add the 'deep frying' in an oil that is likely inflammatory causing canola, or worse, and you pretty much take the Paleo right out of the meal.

Pass- ask for extra veggies or if you're trying to fuel for an upcoming endurance w/o- ask if they'll give you a BAKED sweet potato in their proxy!
