Happy Friday and happy Fry Day! Every year on July 13th we celebrate National French Fry Day! Since your health and happiness are our main concern at QOL we want to help you to celebrate this occasion in a healthy way. In this blog we will be sharing a few of our favorite healthy French fry recipes. P.S. some of these recipes substitute vegetables for traditional potatoes – but they are so delicious you and your family won’t even know how healthy they are!
Traditional French fries are almost unrecognizable from their original potato form. First we start by removing the skin which is actually one of the healthiest parts of the potato. From there the slices are dipped in oil, fried and covered in salt – this process turns a healthy food into something that is very unhealthy for us. Not only are traditional French fries high in sodium, but they can also contain sugar and trans fat. This salty snack can be linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease and more health issues!
This year your QOL health gurus have curated a list of our favorite healthy alternatives! Try whipping one of these up as a side dish tonight – or go all out and organize a French fry swap with your friends or colleagues.
Now you didn’t think we were going to forget the ketchup did you? Regular ketchup is packed with refined sugar and other additives that can completely ruin your efforts to be healthy in just one dip! Try this healthy homemade ketchup recipe instead.
Make sure to share this blog with your friends and family so they can enjoy a healthy Fry day too!
