I was having lunch at my house with an old friend over the weekend (sleeping Toddlers will do that to you) when he spotted some sweet potato fries in the fridge that I had as left-overs from the night before. He had flown in from Singapore but was an Aussie friend who had been in the States a few days and mentioned to me that he had noticed that a lot of restaurants were now offering sweet potato fries – on their menus. “Why is that- are they healthier for you than regular fries?” he asked me.

My answer – absolutely a better choice if that was
