I've avoided the kale chip wagon for awhile now. I've seen the recipe passed around all my crunchy circles and yet I still didn't bother to give it a try. I finally caved in and tried it out today!

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) just put out their updated list for the Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen. For those of you who are not familiar with those terms; they refer to produce and pesticides. The Dirty Dozen being the 12 types of produce with the most pesticides and the Clean Fifteen being the 15 types of produce that have the least amount of pesticides.

I’ve never been a fan of the Food Pyramid or the newer MyPyramid. It was way too much food in some areas and way too little in others.

Everyone loves fries. They are that great side that goes with so many dishes. The downside to fries being that they are usually fried and thus high in fats (and usually not the good kind) and potatoes just don't have a ton going on for them. That's not to say that potatoes are something to be avoided but why make fries out of potatoes when there are carrots fries to be had?
That's right! Fries made out of carrots!!! One day, my children were getting a bit tired of carrots but unfortunately for them, we bought a huge bag of carrots. Out of this ten pound bag of carrot torture, the amazing carrot fries were born. They are a huge hit with my kids. My oldest even rated them better then restaurant potato fries!
