Because, what’s better than a delicious basket of french fries to satisfy a craving?


If you’re like me, and the millions (billions?) of others that are obsessed with sweet potato fries, I’m going to make your day.

Today I have a sweet potato fries recipe that’s safe for those with histamine intolerance and has some added health benefits over your typical sweet potato fries recipe.

Sweet Potatoes and Histamine Intolerance

First off, let’s just clarify that sweet potatoes are pretty all-around great for histamine intolerance. Sweet potatoes have low levels of histamine while also stimulating the secretion of digestive enzymes from the pancreas, which is great considering that histamine intolerance often includes symptoms of digestive distress in many individuals.

This low histamine sweet potato fries recipe is also healthier than the typical fries you would have because they’re baked!

Baking your sweet potato fries reduces the high content of trans-fats in oils that are typically used for frying.

Additionally, as baked sweet potato fries are cooked at pretty high temperatures, it’s pretty important to use the correct type of oil. Many recipes use olive oil, which actually should not be heated to such high temperatures.

Instead, I’ve used coconut oil for which is safe for reaching these high temperatures while also having added health benefits and being safe for histamine intolerance.

Lastly, these sweet potato fries are free from any seasonings that contain additives, colorants and preservatives which may provoke a histamine reaction.

These are truly health-boosting low histamine sweet potato fries!
