Homemade ovenbaked fries from white potatoes

Recommended Posts

Every now and then I treat my 75% paleo daughter to homemade fries of white potatoes baked in the oven (white potatoes, some chilipowder or pepper and coconut or olive oil. Can I have this on the whole30 if in moderation?

Yes -- from the Can I Have Guide:

 

French Fries: Not if they’re commercially prepared or deep-fried

Ordering fries with your (no bun, no cheese) burger and green salad really misses the point of the Whole30. Fries are the epitome of “food with no brakes,” and anything deep-fried in vegetable oil is be default unhealthy. Make your own potatoes at home using coconut oil, duck fat, or ghee, and baking or roasting them in the oven instead of deep-frying them; or order them baked or mashed (no cheese, sour cream, or butter!) if dining out.

Hi,

Pretty new since I am on Day 7 today. Could I sautee potatoes in avocado oil on stove top, do you think? I am not a huge potato eater to begin with, so I would only have a bit. My son loves them this way and wondering if it would work for whole30.

I would think that's okay, they aren't really anything like deep fried french fries like that. I do sweet potatoes that way sometimes. Hopefully a moderator will weigh in if I'm wrong.

I honestly don't see a problem with this.  Many of us saute/pan fry plaintains like this as well when we are on plan so I can't why to leave out the lowly potato.

 

The only thing here - as what goes with everything around here - if the certain food becomes food without breaks (meaning you can't stop eating them, or you have to have them with every meal) then we suggest you reign your consumption in.  Either that or vote them off the island for 30 days.....

My dad slices the potatoes super thin, coats them in Emeril's Essence, and grills them! They practically taste fried, but they're so yummy. I haven't checked the spice for Whole30 compatibility, but I can't imagine it's off-limits. 

Essence is compliant, and really easy to make:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/emerils-essence-recipe.html
