All good tips, most baked foods taste as good as fried if you season the food well. It has helped me to ruse Mrs. Dash in my food preparation. My doctor told me that since I do the shopping, I control what comes into the house. I buy only one fried food that my husband insists that I purchase--Cheetos. I do not eat the Cheetos, I eat carrots and celery while he eats Cheetos. emoticon

Oh, also, I have heard that you can slice veggies very thin and then put them in the microwave and they turn into chips. Would be great with potatoes, beets, parsnips, etc. Would that help with a fried food craving?

I agree that it's important for you to get the rest of your family away from the fried food, though -- if you have it around you all the time that will make your life much more difficult!

My mom also makes great bake-fried potato wedges (coat with cornflake crumbs and sesame seeds, and bake in the oven). Yummy and totally satisfy a french fry craving!

I agree with Kristen. Try panko instead of breadcrumbs and spices and herbs instead of grease when baking.

When cooking really try to add flavor with spices. They won't miss the fried food.

Since you do the cooking, try introducing healthy alternatives to your family. You can take practically anything fried and bake it.

Ok, I am the mother and wife of two teenage boys, a hubby and our daughter. The problem I need help with is how do I stop or control the craving of wanting fried anything, when my family loves having it and I do all the cooking. I could use any help anyone can give.
