Is french fries or onion rings a bad craving comfort food? What are your options to a healthier CF?
Comfort food can go beyond its purpose when it turns into craving. We know that deep fried fatty foods like this fries and onion rings don't really give out nutrients but we look for them and enjoy eating them. It becomes a culprit when we get totally out of control. What are your ways to turning comfort food such as french fries and onion rings into a better healthy choice?
They are the best comfort foods I know but to cut down on the fatty fat stuff is a bake mine. taste different but so much better.
Hi Carrie! My kids would agree the same about onion rings and french fries...KIDS! But thanks to a portable toaster oven, it is convenient & quick to just throw them into the tray, no oil. But kids have to try healthier baked veggie chips!
Yes, they are not the best cravings to have - I know I love carrots, I would eat them all the time... like a rabbit... but this might seem weired to some people :p it might be good to vary your cravings as well, as it is never good to always eat the same thing.
They are a very unhealthy craving if the craving strikes very often, but similar effects might be able to be achieved by, say, spicing slices of onion and baking them without breading. This cuts out the excess grease and most of the carbs. Instead of French fries, perhaps try some baked summer squash fries or baked zucchini chips. Alternatively, if fried foods must be had, try lightly frying in a bit of olive oil with very light breading in a skillet or wok instead of dumping them into a deep fryer.
Everything in moderation.
Something that I really enjoy is sweet potato fries made in the oven, they are so delicious.
Oh this is my favourite potato fries-- the sweet potato! I used to purchase a frozen bag of sweet potato fries from a restaurant before. And have it oven-baked helps do the trick and eat while it's still warm because it easily wrinkles and wilts.
