aked Fries are Best for You! Here’s Why.
Blog Introduction: We all love fries, there’s no denying that. But have you ever wondered why some people say that baked fries are best for you? Here’s a breakdown of the three main reasons why baked fries just might be better for your health than their deep-fried counterparts.
They’re Lower in Fat
This one is a no-brainer. Baked fries are cooked in the oven with little to no oil, while deep-fried fries are, well, fried in a vat of hot oil. So it stands to reason that baked fries would contain less fat than their deep-fried cousins. And less fat means they’re better for your heart health and cholesterol levels.
They’re Higher in Nutrition
Since baked fries don’t require as much oil as deep-fried ones, more of the potato’s natural nutrients remain intact. This means that baked fries contain more fiber, potassium, and vitamin C than deep-fried fries do.
They May Help You Live Longer
A 2018 study found that eating fried foods just once a week can shorten your lifespan by almost two years. On the other hand, the same study found that eating one serving of baked or boiled potatoes per day can actually extend your lifespan by 1.5 years. So if you’re looking to add a few extra years onto your life, ditch the fried potatoes and opt for baked instead.
The next time you’re feeling like some French fries, remember that baked is best! not only are they lower in fat and higher in nutrition, but they may actually help you live longer too. So preheat your oven and get ready to enjoy some delicious—and healthy!—baked potatoes today.
