Tips for Reducing French Fry Calories & Fats
Baking Saves Calories, Unhealthy Lipids
1. If you must have these when dieting, peel a small potato.
Rinse and slice into thin strips. Drizzle them with a small amount of extra virgin olive oil [we recommend the cold press] and bake until crisp.
The olive oil will add about 120 calories per Tablespoon so keep amount to a minimum.
Go Small to Save Calories & Fat Grams
2. For fast food varieties, always opt for the small size even when you're not on a restricted calorie diet. The kid's size makes a wise choice.
