Sweet Potato Chips



Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet potatoes and yams: True sweet potatoes are tuberous vegetables with light to deep-red skins and pale yellow to orange flesh. The term yam is also incorrectly applied to sweet potatoes in US, most often when referring to the darker-skinned, orange-fleshed variety. In fact, true yams are a very large tuberous vegetable eaten in Africa and the Caribbean.


Sweet potatoes contain more beta-carotene than carrots plus vitamin C and fiber. In contrast, true yams have no beta-carotene.



  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 8 ounces), scrubbed
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme



Heat the oven to 325°F and arrange a rack in the middle.


Slice the sweet potato into very thin rounds using a mandolin slicer.


Mix together olive oil and orange zest in a small bowl. Brush two baking sheets with half of oil mixture. Place potato slices on sheets in a single layer and brush tops with remaining oil. Sprinkle with thyme, salt and freshly ground pepper. For one medium sweet potato you will need two-three baking sheets.


Bake one sheet at a time until the edges of the chips curl up, the centers are just golden brown, and the tops are dry to the touch, about 20 minutes. Place the baking sheet on a wire rack and let the chips cool until crisp, about 3 minutes. Using your hands, carefully transfer the chips to a serving dish. Repeat with the second sheet.

Many countries are withdrawing their support for Gardasil.  Gardasil was promoted as a HPV vaccine, and one of the drugs that was supported by Planned Parenthood, and piggied-back through the FDA.

Not enough testing,not enough trials, not enough time.

Now, we are witnessing the mass sterilization of our young women, long term pain, numbness and paralysis.  There are more women suffering from the side effects of this vaccination, than women who contract cervical cancer which is what it was developed for.

Please , do not get this vaccination, no matter how much hype you are hearing about it.
