Won't Stick to Your Thighs Skinny Fries

Who ever said you can't have your cake and eat it too clearly had no idea what they were talking about. Forbid a food from anyone and you know what happens?? The person starts to drive themselves crazy "craving" the food and obsessing over what they can't have. It's kind of true as they say- we want what we can't have. Certain foods get such a horrible rep because of the brutal unhealthy ways they are cooked these days. Fast food joints rank right up there. It's like making a supersized order of high blood pressure with a side of plumped thighs.

Forgo the drive thru, crank up your oven and ladies get to chopping like your grannies did years ago. If you chop enough and with a little force you might even want to check off an arm workout from your to-do exercise for the day! Nothing beats homemade french fries. If you do it right, you can get the same crispy skinny tater in the oven as you would the deep frier.....but you'll be keeping the grease off your fingers and your skinny jeans will still show some love to your thighs.
