These fries are perfect for a Friday “treat*” meal. But really, without all the grease, you don’t need to consider these a treat at all! For marathon training I do my long runs early Saturday morning, and some healthy carbs the night before are a nice little boost for those longer runs.
One of my favorite kitchen tools is the Paderno Spiralizer, which I used to cut my potatoes into these curls. I’ve been very happy with this spiralizer, and I haven’t had any issues. It’s strong enough to cut through sweet potatoes easily! I hope you enjoy these fries!!
*side note if you’re doing a Whole30…if these fries are a “food without breaks for you”, then you should avoid these during your Whole30. Realize that is different for every individual, and finding out what foods spin you out of control is exactly what the Whole30 is designed to do. If you are following a Whole30 or Paleo diet to lose weight potatoes aren’t your best friend since they are so energy dense. That’s why I consider these a treat, and I try to eat potatoes only once a week. 😉
