Dr Jockers Comments:
I modified this recipe to add tons of my favorite herbs in turmeric and oregano. Turmeric is an extraordinary anti-inflammatory powerhouse and oregano is anti-microbial. The combination synergizes to keep the immune system strong and reduce inflammation throughout the entire body.
These don’t taste quite like traditional French fries but you will still be impressed with the flavor and texture and they are low carb and rich in good fats and fiber. I prefer a lot of coconut oil like I have in this recipe as it makes them more oil and rich. Unlike vegetable oils the coconut oil will not contribute to acne but instead will help your skin become softer and smoother. The extra coconut oil also improves your energy and reduces cravings.
You can vary the spices on these depending upon what you like and want. You could add more garlic or onion into these and less turmeric and it will still come out quite good. These are good all alone or mixed with sweet potato fries a salad and a healthy protein source. Enjoy!
