Almost everyone enjoys the taste of french fries. However, these little fries can sabotage your weight loss goals. If you want to make healthier fries that are less likely to ruin your diet, consider baking them. Create 1/2″ wedges or fries and toss them with a tablespoon of oil, a bit of salt and pepper, and your favorite herbs. Spread them out on a baking sheet, and pop in a 400 degree oven for a half hour. Gently lift them so they don’t stick, flip them over and then continue baking for about 10 more minutes. They’re really delicious with ketchup, a lot lower in calories and you’ll never miss the deep frying. These great baking ideas come from Laurel’s Kitchen Cookbook.

Now you will be successful at losing weight. You will be able to meet your weight loss goals. Once you begin your weight loss journey, make sure you stay on track.
