New recipes for old favorites (like French Fries!)

Recommended Posts

OK a small order of french fries at McD's or similar is 9 points... you can make this recipe for 3 points and a lot more to eat!


Seasoned Sweet-Potato Fries - 3 pts.



- 1/2 pound (8 oz.) of sweet potatoes

- Cooking spray (olive oil flavored)

- Salt

- Garlic powder

- Red chili powder



- Preheat oven to 400 degrees

- Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray

- Slice sweet potatoes into thin strips

- Put sliced potatoes in a bowl and spray with cooking spray to coat

- Add salt, garlic powder and chili powder and toss to coat

- Spread out on cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes

- Occasionally flipping fries with a spatula

- Cook until crispy on outside and soft on inside


Eat with a 1/4 cup of ketchup for 1 additional points

Mmm Kash those sound yummy!


When my mom is trying to cut out flour she makes pasta out of grated squash and serves it with fresh tomato sauce. Not sure how many points that is but it is very healthy :)

I made these for lunch, they were delicious!!! I want to make them for dinner too, but I think I should probably eat something else, lol!

Yay! I;m glad you guys liked them. I figured if anyone has recipes that are sort of substitutions of traditionally caloric recipes we can post them here. What do you think?

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
