New recipes for old favorites (like French Fries!)

Recommended Posts

OK a small order of french fries at McD's or similar is 9 points... you can make this recipe for 3 points and a lot more to eat!

 

Seasoned Sweet-Potato Fries - 3 pts.

 

Ingredients:

- 1/2 pound (8 oz.) of sweet potatoes

- Cooking spray (olive oil flavored)

- Salt

- Garlic powder

- Red chili powder

 

Directions:

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees

- Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray

- Slice sweet potatoes into thin strips

- Put sliced potatoes in a bowl and spray with cooking spray to coat

- Add salt, garlic powder and chili powder and toss to coat

- Spread out on cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes

- Occasionally flipping fries with a spatula

- Cook until crispy on outside and soft on inside

 

Eat with a 1/4 cup of ketchup for 1 additional points

Mmm Kash those sound yummy!

 

When my mom is trying to cut out flour she makes pasta out of grated squash and serves it with fresh tomato sauce. Not sure how many points that is but it is very healthy :)

Yay! I;m glad you guys liked them. I figured if anyone has recipes that are sort of substitutions of traditionally caloric recipes we can post them here. What do you think?

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
