Today we are changing pace here a little bit to talk about another one of my favorites… FOOD.
I am going to be completely transparent here and tell you that food is something that I have always struggled with. Most guys will say their girlfriend has a sweet tooth… well…I have a sweet tooth (MAJOR), I have a fries-tooth, I have a chinese-tooth, I have a pasta-tooth… you name it and I will tell you I love it (okay, tomatoes are the exception).
I just really love food okay?! 😉
With that being said, my metabolism has never (EVER) been fast and I have never been that girl who could eat an entire pizza by herself and never gain a pound… yet somehow I the friends I choose for myself all have this talent 🙂
Well, I eventually decided I had to do something to combat my slow metabolism. Enter: clean eating 101, when I decided to make the change this summer I LIVED on Pinterest sourcing new and yummy “clean eating indulgent foods” and this recipe here is my absolute favorite so naturally, I had to share! For me, things like this change the food game (and the body game)!
Rutabaga Fries (makes a big bowl full):
- 1 Rutabaga
- 2 Tbs Olive Oil
- 3 cloves Rosemary (finely chopped)
- Salt (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl combine the olive oil and the chopped Rosemary, set aside. Peel the Rutabaga, then cut it into half and then in half again (into quarters). You will now want to cut in a downward motion from the curved edge of the rutabaga quarter to the flat edge. Cut each section into about a 1 inch fry.
When all of your fries are chopped, place them into the mixing bowl and gently coat them in the olive oil and rosemary mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pop them in the oven for 30 minutes and flip them over at 15 minutes. Sometimes my fries tend to need a little bit longer, so keep an eye on them, when they start to turn golden on the edges they’re close to being done! At this point you’ll want to switch the oven over to broil (on the lowest setting) and leave them in there for about 2 minutes until they start to look nice and crispy!
Yum!!!! Enjoy 🙂
