January 27, 2011 By Leanne Vogel July 22, 2015I am big on homemade fries with coconut oil. There was a period in my life, not so long ago, where all I’d eat for dinner were fries. Don’t get me wrong, potatoes are an amazing vegetable. They’re high in vitamin C, fiber, their easy on the digestive system, and high in vitamin b6 [great for any of you ladies out there experiencing PMS… maybe that’s why I like potatoes so much!]. But, like anything, too much of a good thing turns out to be not so good in the long run. Variety is the key to health, so eating fries and coconut oil daily; even though they’re homemade, isn’t so healthful. I’ve since minimized my consumption to once per week and now enjoy them accompanied by a salad. I think that’s fair. Last night began like any other night. I was in the kitchen making dinner [it was fries night, yay!], and Kevin was strolling around the house taking pictures of things. While passing by the kitchen Kevin said “Wouldn’t it be cool if you could make me apple fries? Mmm those would be good”… he had something there. I hummed and hawed, then it came to me. Coated apple fries. How glorious! The more fiber we pair with fruit, the better. So, I decided to pack the crunchy outer layer with highly fibrous ingredients.
