Try Making A Healthy Version Of An Indulgent Food--Rutabaga Fries!



I got a recipe off the internet for "rutabaga fries" (yes the waxy vegetable, easy to peel!)...1/3 the carbs of a potato, and 1/2 the fat! Plus, you can slice them similar to McD's fries (not that I crave them anymore, but such a treat to have them look that way!) They are also only "fries" in name, as they are prepared--oven roasted, and actually taste healthier

Lots of variations to try...I can "trick" myself into thinking I'm indulging!
