Japanese Yam Chips
… Yam Yam Yum Yum That’s right, these good for you potato chips are Yammy, I mean Yummy. I’ve known about baking potato fries and even sweet potato fries, but this is my first time learning about and tasting Japanese yam chips. I first heard about it in a healthy fit group via my church. A group of us have been following The Daniel Plan Detox. It’s not your normal detox, you’re actually encouraged to eat a balance of proteins, carbs, and fats. I’ve been avoiding grains and sugars and dairy for ten days; after that, I will gradually add back goat kefir and yogurts, and grains, such as rice, quinoa or amaranth; and even lentils and beans. Anyway, today is day 10. I’ve just about made it! But today is also the day that I happen to be CRAVING like mad! Chewy, crunchy, salty Ahhh gimme something yummy. Or Yammy. Seriously, if you have not tried a Japanese Yam before, go out and find one. It’s not quite as sweet as a regular orange colored sweet potato. It’s much more mild or even a tad bitter. Also more satisfying than a regular boring potato… sorry. I’m now partial.
Alright already… I’ll get to the good part:
