The Unhealthy Facts About Fried Foods

Why deep fried anything has no business in your healthy, 1R-Approved, diet. On the not-really-hit-show but personal fave, Food Revolution, my future hubby Jamie Oliver recently looked on as a family ceremoniously buried their deep fryer for a healthier lifestyle. Everyone considers fried foods unhealthy – but what’s so wrong with indulging in some good ol’ Mcdonald's french fries, or a plate of frickles (fried pickles) from the ever-classy Brother Jimmy’s?
