Fries

Sick of Sweet Potatoes? It’s hard not to delve into sweet potatoes at every meal and nutritionists and pt’s around the world say eat a potato a day as you are not eating enough carbs. To be honest sometimes I look at a sweet potato and want to throw it at the wall. Sometimes I want an easier option than peeling an oddly shaped hard to cut vegetable. I love zucchini, I eat it everyday and don’t get sick of it (yet) my daughter loves zoodles but misses fries so to whip these up in 20 minutes, I’m a pretty cool mum.

Here’s some alternatives to the traditional fries that we all love;  zucchini, eggplant, daikon, capsicum, sweet potato, turnip, pumpkin (harder varieties). Cut in fries, rounds, shapes of all kinds!!

Kids Snacks

My daughter loves change and surprises so today was snack day. We set about to watch ‘The Little Mermaid’ for the 532nd time and I said it was ‘Chippy day’!!!

verggie chips

She flew into the air and went straight to the fridge. She chose Kale, sweet potato, zucchini and parsnip. We peeled, sliced, coconut oiled, salted and baked the the thin as paper chips. Not only did she get an awesome snack she also said her mum was the bestest cooker in all the land…WINNING!
