Yes, you’re on the CLG site! And that’s right, you can enjoy French fries right at home, and feel good about it too.
What makes these different than those deep fried beauties you love eating out? They’re not deep fried in rancid (often GMO) oils. If you have a gluten allergy that commercial frier is also likely contaminated with gluten, however regardless of any gluten concerns, those cheap rancid oils are highly carcinogenic and bad for everyone’s health.
That’s really the main issue that makes fries truly unhealthy. To get that fry texture you’ll need to use high-heat and that’s why this recipe calls for Avocado Oil – not olive oil. If you substitute for olive oil, or another oil that can’t handle the heat you will end up with an unhealthy treat.
If you’re not eating potatoes for carb/ health related reasons. A potato is still a potato, but by and large potatoes in moderation are also a healthy food. They’re packed with vitamins and minerals, can reduce blood pressure and are especially high in vitamin B6 – a great food for athletes! Enjoy!
