Shit! Excuse my language- or should I say excuse my “French?”
My mouth waters in memory just to think about it. Those crispy fried potatoes- golden, steaming hot, salty or unsalted
I use to be a French fry-acholic during my teenage and early adulthood.
I was hooked on French fries.
I stopped a long while back as I cut down on fried foods period. I never ate too much fried food frequently to begin with, though I would sometimes indulge heavily at times on certain things that I enjoyed to eat.
I was informed during early adulthood how fried foods could harden arteries yet that did not stop me from consuming those yummy fries. I took the warning seriously I just was not able to resist my favorite so-called junk food.
I was already limited in what I ate as I was a vegan/vegetarian.
A day came when the desire for French fries subsided. Then once in a while I would get the urge to peel, cut and fry my own, or go buy a frozen bag from the supermarket.
Nowadays, even though I may sometimes hunger for a fry, I do not even try.
Luckily, I am within good health, far from any heart disease and I would like to keep it that way.
I have always eaten pretty healthy and nutritiously but there are always specific foods we should be careful of and eat within moderation if not at all after a while.
Watch the fried foods, refined sugars, saturated fats and other harmful, no-good additives and ingredients.
