CARROT FRIES- CLEAN EATING


I did a 5-day juice cleanse recently, which ended (against my will but for the sake of my marriage) when my husband decided enough was enough and took me to our restaurant to eat some "real food". The juice cleanse was a great experience and would recommend it to everyone. I couldn't believe how awesome I felt, how much energy I had and while everyone in my family was sick I maintained my health.

So the cleanse is over, shorter than expected and I have one issue staring at me in the face...a 25-pound bag of carrots to be exact. I juiced probably 10 pounds of carrots but still have about 15 pounds of carrots left. Onto Google for carrot recipes.

I was extremely happy to find the carrot fries recipe because this way my kids can help me slowly dent into that big bag. My daughter especially loved these...my son was a little afraid of the color...I thought they were excellent!


CARROT FRIES- CLEAN EATING
adapted from Martha Stewart
Serves 2

4 large carrots
1-2 teaspoons of olive oil
sea salt
parsley
 Wash and peel your carrots.
 Cut carrots into sticks. The thinner the better, if they are thick they will be soggy.
  Toss with 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and parsley.
Spread on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Make sure they are not crouded on sheet. Flip carrots half way through cooking time.

Serve immediately.
