French Fries

100_5272There is nothing better than fries cooked in coconut oil!!

Saturated fat got its bad name because of “trans-fat” they linked the 2 together, when in fact they are very different.

Trans-fat I think has been conclusively researched to be bad for us there is no question about that. Coconut oil does NOT contain any trans-fat!

 

Packaging or listing ingredients

FDA approved that the food can have .5 mg  PER SERVING of trans-fat and still be labeled 0 trans-fat. (Vegetable oil, canola oil etc)

 

Saturated fat is stable it has an indefinite shelf life, and will not turn rancid like other fats do.

 

Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty-acids which are a high immune builder.

 

Coconut oil has

antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial properties.

 

I am not saying that you should eat fries cooked in coconut oil everyday. However, if you are going to eat fries, this is the best way to go!

Enjoy yourself!!

 

French Fries

 

Wash and slice potatoes of your choice (leaving the skin on adds fiber and more nutrition to the potato). Heat coconut oil in a cast iron skillet to about 360°F. Cook the potatoes/fries until golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels or brown paper bags. Season with sea salt.

You can also season with paprika, black pepper or cayenne pepper.
