    Fried Foods?

    Shop Now
    Just wondering... if you use lard rendered from grass-fed cows, would fried foods be healthy? Like sweet potato chips or fries (assuming you're already lean and active, and so not counting carbs). Does frying destroy the nutrients, or would it still be pretty healthy?

    I love the idea of a t-bone steak and a side of fries being good for me.

    Just to be clear, I meant deep fried foods.

    Nothing wrong with good foods fried in good fats, so long as you don't overcook them

    It is fine. Just don't overcook your meats or vegetables. Vegetables tend to lose the most nutrients when frying (steamed retain most of the nutrients). Also, personally, I dislike deep frying as it waste too much oil. But hey....if you have the oil, then do it.

    The fried foods are making you dehydrated. Try not eating fried foods until you get your system back in order.
