Fried foods – ‘diet’ sabotage 101…

For those of you who know me, you’ll recall I have very few ‘rules’ when it comes to food.  Just about every food can fit into a well planned out eating plan…but fried foods just don’t cut it! Especially when you can enjoy the same wonderful foods at home for ½ the calories…

At last check, Milestones yam fries ‘cost’ a whopping 680 calories, which if split between two people works out to 340 calories each.  Not bad for calories you say – and you’d be right if ½ a plate of yam fries and an ice tea is what you call dinner (which I don’t, by the way).  If you’re like most of us, that’s just the beginning; then the entrée, let’s say for arguments sake is an average of 700 calories, plus perhaps another beverage… all for a grand total of way too much!

Now, if you had just skipped the appy, chose a calorie free drink and picked a meal for around 600 calories, you might actually be close enough to ‘on track’ to win this dietitian’s approval!

Still love yam fries you say?  Bake them at home!  Check out our recipe section for our yam fry recipe and get the full restaurant experience for ½ the calories (sauce included).  Enjoy!
