Fried chicken. French fries. Potato chips. Veggie tempura. Let’s face it. Fried foods can be tasty, crunchy, and satisfying. But, they tend to be high in trans and saturated fats. They can add inches to your waistline. And they can raise your cholesterol levels and hurt your heart health. Some tasty swaps? Try baked sweet potato fries in place of French fries. Roasted nuts tossed over sautéed or steamed veggies can replace battered deep-fried tempura. Grilled chicken marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh herbs can replace fried chicken.
