Sweet Potato has many health benefits.

rich in beta carotene, dietary fibre, vitamin B6, vitamin C and several minerals.

- source of potent antioxidant to help in healing,
cancer prevention, and fight the effects of aging

- high fiber content makes it great for the digestive system.

For DOGS: Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Keep in mind, if you are watching your dog’s weight, sweet potatoes contain high levels of carbohydrates and sugar. In my case, its alright as I need to gain some weight. For the coming months, Sweet Potato is going to be part of my regular diet. For sure mom will find different ways to make some DELISH Tasty Sweet Potato Treats.

  1. Sweet potato is a Casa de Kolchak favourite. Did you know it’s a pretty powerful anti-inflammatory food? That’s why so many “allergy friendly” pet foods are made with it!

  2. Mama’s favorite!! LOVE those sweet potato fries!! We like them too, but not as much as she does!! Thanks for the tip on how to cook them! xo Chloe and LadyBug

  3. We all love these at our house! Have you tried grilling them? Yum!

  4. oh my those look beyond delish!!!!!! mom just boiled us some sweet potatoes but we need to try fries and she always adds curcumin to our diet, she wrote about it today we do have one quesiton, when you feed sugar coconut oil, not in these fries, but as part of her regular meal do you warm it up or just feed it as a solid

  5. Never mind the canine, sweet potato fries are one of MY favorite treats! I might have to try this for the HUMANS only dusted with cinnamon instead of turmeric. Anyway Toby is back on his diet so he would only get one or two, depending on his begging skills…which usually are pretty spectacular. Lucky you Sugar to be able to consume nice healthy treats!

  6. Frankie and Ernie says:

  11. MadSnapper says:

    Jake and Baby love carrot fries, so i am thinking they would love these to…

  12. Our Little Bit loves them too Sugar, and with all the allergies she has she is not allergic to sweet potatoes. We’re happy about that.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. :)

  13. Vlad & Barkly's Dee says:

    Vlad & Barkly love sweet potatoes, but I’m not so inclined to give it to them very often just because it’s seems so hard to cut them up–harder than most anything else in the kitchen except for maybe turnips that they love too. Do you have any EASY way to cut up these really large, hard tubers?

  14. I’d have to fight my peeps for those Sugar. Have a terrific tasty Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. Mmmmm. We all love sweet potatoes at our house! Going to have to try baking some fries with your recipe. Thanks for the recipe!

  16. There’s sweet potato in our food! Yumyumwum! Wooooowooooooooo!

  17. Katie loves sweet potatoes, I don’t like them much and usually turn my nose up at treats that taste like them or I carry it around forever and just guard it. I’m much more a fan of fruits than veggies.

  18. Oh Sugar, everyone is making me so hungry today!

  19. I love it when mom gives me sweet potato. She always bakes it in the oven. Would you believe it, she actually knows how to turn on the oven.

  20. Sugar, sweet potatoes are my favoritest vegetable!!! I just had some baked and mashed sweet potato mixed in with my food last night. Ma loves them too so she always shares with me. Enjoy those sweet potato fries!

  23. Our mommy love sweet potato fries Sugar but she’d share some with you!

  24. Yummy! :D We both love sweet potato’s in this house. By the way, great recipe! Do you think I could make it minus the oil or would it be too dry?

  25. Delicious! I love sweet potato fries.

  26. I love sweet potato fries myself. I never thought of making some for Chester and Gretel. I don’t cook for them (just Kong stuffing in the food processor) but this is something I could make for myself AND them to eat.

  27. Your people make the best treats. We want some fries too! Lee and Phod

  28. I LOVE sweet potato and sweet potato fries! Can you believe I’ve never actually cooked any sweet potato before? It’s on my to-do list, so maybe I’ll have to give this a try.

  29. Looks yummy!

  30. The Lapdogs ADORE sweet potatoes!
