Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries

Tonight is the first night of another Whole30.  My sixth, I think?  The chocolate peanut butter ice cream I ate in Vegas almost killed me, so it's certainly time for another month of super-strict eating.

This is one of my tried and true meals.  The sweet potato fries are actually kind of crispy; of course I say kind of because it's more of a crust that they get on them.  But they taste like candy.

Burgers


2 lbs grass fed beef

1/4 cup hot sauce (I use Frank's)

1.5 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp salt

Get in there with your hands and mix that up!  Your hands will be an orange mess. It's okay.  The payoff is worth it.

I made seven burgers out of 2 pounds of beef.  Grill them to your liking.

Sweet Potato Fries


Put your baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 450*.

3 lbs sweet potatoes (I used small ones and needed leftovers for hubs), washed and cut into wedges.

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1.5 tsp granulated garlic

2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

1. Toss melted coconut oil onto cut sweet potatoes.

2. Add spices and toss with your hands to make sure the potatoes are covered.

3. Put sweet potatoes onto pre-heated baking sheet and bake for approximately 25 minutes.
