Greasy French Fries vs. Baked Sweet Potato Fries?
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Just a shout out to let you know that I am still with you!
I am going on 4 months since I stopped eating Fast Food.
The addiction is gone but the temptation to over eat is the battle ground now.
I am finding that if I deny myself something that I am craving, like french fries, I tend to eat anything and everything to satisfy my craving until I give in and eat it any way.
Tip: Substitute a greasy french fries and/or potato chips for a healthier small baked sweet potato or this great Sweet Potato French Fries recipe submitted by SparkPeople user NEWLIFE1974.
