To start off our series featuring other foodies around the web, we reached out to Kristen from The Slender Kitchen, a great blog consisting of many healthy recipes and meal plans. She has given us a great substitute for French fries-Spicy Green Bean Fries:
French fries just may be every dieter’s nemesis. Salty, crispy, and oh-so-addictive; it is easy to quickly rack up hundreds of calories mindlessly eating a plateful of fries with a sandwich or burger. And sadly, even at home baked versions sometimes pack a caloric punch with lots of added calories from oil and starchy potatoes. So next time you crave fries, try these spicy green bean fries instead. They are packed with flavor and make a perfect as a snack, side dish, or appetizer that both kids and adults are sure to love.
