Who doesn’t love french fries? French fries are bad for those trying to lose weight. However, you can have your french fries and still not sabotage your diet by baking instead of frying. After slicing potatoes into 1/2″ strips, place in a bowl along with 1T of canola oil. Sprinkle with pepper, salt and other seasonings of your choice. Arrange the fries on a roaster pan or cookie sheet in just one layer and bake at 400 degrees in your oven for 30 minutes. Turn it with a spatula and then bake 10 minutes more. Dipped in catsup, they are quite tasty and contain far fewer fat calories. You won’t even miss the deep fried effect. These “French Bakes” were provided by Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.

If you have leftovers, there’s nothing wrong with taking them home. Just because you still have food on your plate does not mean you should eat every last bit of it. Pay attention to what you eat and stop as soon as you feel full.
