Paleo & Whole30 Recipe Oven Baked French Fries

The favorite ways to eat potatoes is in oven baked french fry form – and they’re incredibly easy to make at home! While conventionally-cooked (deep fried) french fries are NOT allowed on your Whole30, you can totally make your own in the oven, and this variety is totally Whole30 Approved. These oven baked french fries are essentially roasted potatoes. Not deep fried in oils that aren’t good for you. There’s a huge difference!

So many of you have asked me about white potatoes versus sweet potatoes and if it’s okay to use white potatoes once in a while and the answer is yes! Have you ever tried a Japanese sweet potato?? They’re deep red on the outside and cream colored on the inside! They taste like a hybrid between a sweet potato and a regular potato – yum!!
