Carrot Fries Recipe

(Affiliate links included for your convenience!) 

Welcome to another week of Nutrisystem fun. This week, I wanted to highlight one of my very favorite NS friendly side dishes: Carrot Fries!! This dish is SO simple that it is almost not even a recipe. It counts as a veggie serving, or two, or four. (If you are like me and like to munch on the entire bag as your daily vegetable requirement once in awhile!) Also, if you are not on Nutrisystem, they fit very well into your toddlers daily meal schedule and are kid-approved. My littles will eat them by the fistful! 

What you will need: 

Bolthouse Farms Matchstix Carrots
Olive Oil Spray or an Oil Trigger Spray Bottle filled with your own olive oil

And that is it!!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lay your carrots in a single layer on your cookie sheet, spray and coat with olive oil spray. Pop in the oven for 30 minutes, flipping the fries at the midway point. 

If you notice from my pictures, the outer fries will cook a bit quicker and char up. Don't discard these. They are the most delicious ones! I love how they taste all mixed in. I serve them on a bed of ketchup , and incorporate them as we eat. I love to eat mine on the side of a  Nutrisystem lunch hamburger or one of the stuffed chicken breast dinners! 

But they make an awesome snack as is for your kiddos! I love having a healthy alternative to french fries that the entire family can enjoy. If you are looking for a super quick and easy side dish that is different, delicious, and simple enough for your kids to help you make, than this is the one!

It was super bizarre that I lost the EXACT same amount of weight this week down to the ounce, but I am so excited! That is two big loss weeks in a row. Though I will be posting next week, my next weigh in will not be for the next TWO weeks. Why? Because we are going to DISNEY! I will be interested in seeing what the scale says when we return from our trip. Wish me luck!
