On my quest for a better body, I am trying to find alternatives for some of my weaknesses. One of my biggest "guilty-don't-eat-me" food is french fries. From the research (and Lord only knows why I would need to research this little fact) french fries is probably one of the worst foods someone could eat. REALLY!?!?!?! Just kidding, I knew that, but on a Saturday nite after watching an entire football game so that I can see my one little clarinet player march (for 7 minutes) with the marching band, then picking her up at midnite after the game -- fresh fruit unfortunately is not the first stop. Usually it's a burger and fries --- baaad.
A yummy alternative to regular french fries would be the sweet potato fry. These are very simple to make. Slice a sweet potato, toss with a little olive oil and the seasonings of your choice (paprika, sea salt, garlic, pepper) then bake on a cookie sheet lined with foil paper at 450 for 20 minutes. There are lots of varieties of this recipe on line to try. Give them a try!
