I like the idea of eating healthy. It is not always easy to do but just look at an ingredient label on some of the packaged food and you may began to wonder "what is all that stuff?" Tonight I made some baked french fries. I wanted to get them kid tested but I don't think that my two grandsons who were at the table even tried them. (They are picky) My daughter-in-law and I both loved them. For those interested the recipe for 4 servings is:
Oven Fries
2 baking potatoes 1 tablespoon of olive oil salt
Preheat to 425 degrees.
Cut potatoes in half and then slice halves lengthwise into 3/4 inch strips by 1/2 inch. Toss with olive oil and salt. Place on a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer. Bake 30 minutes. Turn over with a spatula and bake the other side for 10-15 minutes. Fries should come up easily or cook a little longer. Remove with a spatula and serve

Olive oil is a healthy oil that has monounsaturated fat that is good for the heart.
