I’m a comfort food girl…and it turns out, comfort foods and healthy foods aren’t mutually exclusive. Don’t believe me? Meet Nacho Mama’s Fries.
The only difference between these plant-based nacho fries and classic nacho cheese fries is that you won't feel uncomfortably full (and a wee bit sick) after finishing off a plateful.
Serve these at your next party, make them for date night, or enjoy by yourself while watching Netflix (check out What the Health while you’re at it).
However you decide to enjoy them just remember: when it comes to plant-based whole foods you don’t need to worry so much about portion control or calorie counting… so fire up your oven and enjoy. You deserve it!
