What Joet says. Plus according to my wife who does nutritional work, sweet potatoes are far better for you than normal spuds. And in my opinion taste better too. Best still, sweet potatoes crisp better in the oven without any oil at all - just slice, season and bake until they're done (usually about 30-40mins depending on how big you slice them).

Frankly though (she says) keeping yourself fit and active is most important, that way you can still have your beer and chips the way you like them (although she still recommends keeping the salt down and having plenty of fruit and veg).

Sorry, for the US contingent, spuds is British-speak for potatoes and chips are fries...

We know. We're fat, not stupid.

Sorry, not casting aspersions, just wasn't sure if the UK slang was widely known over the pond. Most Americans I've met are neither gravitationally nor intellectually challenged. Except when it comes to sports involving hitting a ball with a bat... ;-)

You can add cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, onion and garlic for an even more flavorful and healthy (lower caloric density, lower glucose index) side vegetable.


Wow! Thanks for your healthy recipe. While I was reading your reply, I began to imagine how tasty it is I've already arranged with my husband that for next party we will prepare fried potatoes in these way

Thank you and your wife I'll follow her advice about sweet potatoes. I haven't known this info before. If honest, we usually took just spuds.

And yes, yes, I know, fruit and veg... but it's not our story yet

Thanks for reply. If honest, I haven't thought about an air fryer. Now reading about it here https://www.bestadviser.in/air-fryers and thinking to purchase. Do you use it?

I do, that's why I posted here.
Others into sports and diet
Would say "Put down your big mug, don't even try it!"
How do you make them not so fat?
I would prefer them more like that.
I'd really like some good advices
For fried potatoes and berliner weisses.


I am so glad to meet the person, who understand us
