OMG. O.M.G. Sonic has sweet potato TOTS. Yes, I know they are caked in weird stuff and fried in weirder stuff, but it doesn’t make me want them any less. I want to make sweet love to those sweet potato tots and consume a gallon of ketchup along with them. Sweet potato fries and tots are something that literally doesn’t fill me up. I could eat an entire basket full at any restaurant, and still want more. Bet me. I’ll show any bro up in a sweet potato tot eating contest.

Hence why I made this post.

OMG guess what? I have a new obsession. The Hunger Games. Yep, I hopped on that bandwagon. But I needed to see what all the excitement was about. And having 12+ hours on an airplane makes reading quite enjoyable. I never get to read. I’m blogging instead of reading. Typing instead of consuming my brain with a fictional wonderland. I love fictional wonderlands. Avatar. Twilight. Now the Hunger Games. I’m down like Charlie Brown. And I love thrilling love stories. I’m still in this child-like thought that there is a prince charming out there for me. So these books are effing great for intensifying those hopes and dreams. So childish. So naive.

So guess what I did?! I saw the movie right after I read the book. Yep. I made Dom go to a movie with me. He’s such a kind soul, and patient person. It was pretty good. Stayed pretty true to the book. Except Katniss braid wasn’t down her back. Yeah, that was what annoyed me the most. I’m so dumb. But I cannot wait to read the second book now. Like, OMG, I’m pumped enough I’m going to go buy the book this weekend. I should get a kindle. Not really, that’s a waste of money for my world. I read 1 book a year, if I’m lucky. So I guess the last time I was lucky was my junior year of college when I read all 4 Twilight books pretty much within a month.

Wanna know something extra cool about Dom? He gave me this ketchup bottle. No big deal. Just the most handy gift I’ve ever been given. When he gave it to me, I knew I would someday make paleo ketchup and store it in my fridge in this little handsome bottle. Genius man, he is. I told you that practical gifts are the best kinds. If you would rather have flowers over a kitchen utensil, you’re high.

    For the ketchup, 2 (6 oz) cans tomato paste. Did you mean 2 cans of 6 oz or 6 oz totally?

    1. juli says:

  2. Sarah says:

  3. Jessica says:

    How do you get the fries to look so crunchy? Whenever I make sweet potato fries they are always soft and somewhat soggy no matter how long I cook them for =(

    1. Jody says:

      @Jessica I second this motion. I can never get mine to actually hold the shape of a fry, they’re always soggy and sad but burnt on the ends 🙁

  4. Julie says:

    new to this site, but can’t wait to try out some of these recipes! The one restaurant in town here actually does have a tot eating contest, it made me lol when you mentioned one.

  5. danimal says:

    I dont use honey or agave and in all the recipes I get from you I substitute xylotol sugar in place of it, I was wondering if I use that sugar instead would it effect the consistancy/flavor?

    1. juli says:

      im not sure! i’ve never used it though…

  6. Jeni says:

    Just out of complete curiousity.. why veggie broth instead of chicken?

    1. juli says:

      if i can’t find a sugar free chicken broth, i use veggie broth, but chicken is totally ok as well!!

    I’m a newbie to the Paleo life! I’m actually on day 6 of Whole30 🙂 I LOVE your blog, this is BOYOND perfect for me, and I can’t wait to try out more recipes once I am through this month!!! Sooo, I am just curious, with condiments and homemade flours etc, what kind of shelf life do they have? I am all for making it all, just want to know how much I can make at a time!!! Thanks!

  8. Mickey says:

    I’m actually reading (and obsessing) over Hunger Games right now and put the book down because I wanted to make sweet potato fries. I just happened to stumble upon your recipe and wow, what a coincidence! Haha thank you!

  9. Jaclyn says:

    These are fantastic, however… I was very confused as to the use of the Coconut Oil Spray that you list and link to in the ingredients because it contains GMO soy in it! Yuck! Why not just toss them in regular coconut oil or olive oil? Not trying to nit-pick or anything, I just wanted to point it out in case anyone has a sensitivity or allergy to soy and wouldn’t know that it was in there!

    I thought that when you heard potatoes being referred to as “sweet potatoes” in paloe context, that really meant yams. I didn’t think they white ones were pale on account of them being so starchy.

      you can find white sweet potatoes at stores. sweet potatoes are not recommended for people who are looking to lose weight
