Bake Up Paleo Beet Fries

The following post was written by Rebecca Pytell, who blogs at Strength & Sunshine and is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness.

Stepping away from the traditional potato, these BBQ beet fries are a healthy, low-carb, baked side to any summer cookout. Make room on your plate for this super veggie showstopper. Gluten-free, vegan, and Paleo, everyone can enjoy some “fries!”

Who am I?! I’m cheating on potatoes with beets! Actually beets are one of my other favorite foods (okay, I have a lot of favorites and you probably want me to shut-up since I say every food is my favorite but . . . ), I thought they should get some recipe love. I usually just eat my daily beets (yes, daily) chopped up and raw in a mix of veggies I have for dinner, but sometimes a girl has to get fancy with her beets.
