Are french fries considered a vegetable?
Some say that fried potatoes are not vegetables. I say that's a bunch of poppy cock. Just because a vegetable is fried does not mean it's not a veggie. What are your thoughts?
While french fries are vegetables, they're not particularly healthy. If you're buying them at a fast food place, or those bags at the grocery store, there are all sorts of things other than potatoes in them. And frying food, even in a health-conscious oil, is still really high in fat.
So, don't kid yourself into thinking eating french fries is in any way as healthy as eating a plate of raw, green vegetables.
Yes, - If you are a public school superintendent ... along with ketchup
in dietary terms potatoes are not considered vegetables, they are considered starches. so through reasonable deduction... french fries are made from potatoes, potatoes are starches, therefore french fries are starches. my step mother was a dietitian so dinner would often look like this
meat, starch, veggie (example: meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans)
They are a high starch , Carb. And once deep fried are no longer high enough in nutrients to be a healthy veggie. To keep nutrients you need to roast in stead of deep fry. But they will still be high in carbs. If you must have them, reduce the amount you eat.
