Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Taraje Williams-Murray: Judo

Taraje Williams-Murray, 23, won't be eating sweet potato fries this week—10 days before every competition he has to cut out all starchy foods. But he relishes the sweet-salty treat when he can get them. "I look forward to this meal more than any other because I'm usually craving carbs," he says.
