Root Vegetable Fries

Root Vegetable Fries

I love fries. So much so that I could eat my entire daily allotment of carbs in one sitting. They're just so tasty and addicting. And they go great with everything. When I was walking through the produce section of the grocery store the other day and looking at all the beautiful vegetables, I decided I wanted to try something new. A vegetable that I'd never tried before. I picked up a rutabaga first. I knew very little about rutabaga. I'd never eat one before. I just knew that it was a root vegetable and in comparison to potatoes it had very little carbohydrates. By no means am I a carbaphobe though, I love my carbs, especially on intense training days they're so essential. But nevertheless I think it's nice to have some lower carb tasty vegetable options. On rest days I like to eat lower carb, higher fat, so having a treat like this will be perfect. And a variety of vegetables is always important.
