Fried Sliced Potatoes

I woke up this morning wanting something different to eat. I tend to get in a rut eating the same things all the time which isn't good. When we eat the same things all the time our bodies adjust to those foods and if you are trying to take off some weight you will come to a stand still. It is just like with our workouts, we need to mix it up, throw our bodies a curve ball, make it go hey where did  that come from. These are two secrets to not only getting that fit toned body you want, but also for maintaining.

Okay this is soooo easy and soooo good.

What you need.

Russet potatoes

Coconut shortening


Sea Salt

Melt shortening and butter in a pan, slice potatoes, add potatoes to the pan, sprinkle with salt. Check for browning and flip when it is golden brown crunchy, sprinkle with more salt, place on plate covered with paper towels to absorb access oils and enjoy.

Yes, they are similar to potato chips, but better that the inside is still soft. If you slice them real thin you will end up with chips, so be sure to cut them thicker, but not too thick. By the way if they are a little dark like those in the picture they have a great outside crunch. I haven't had this in a longgggg time, mmmmm, can't stop eating 'em. This is great as a side, or a snack, oh my bet they would be great with a dip.


  1. Simple and easy foods are sometimes the tastiest. I use coconut oil when a recipe calls for any type of oil or shortening. To me its the healthiest and makes foods tastes so good. .Have a healthy happy day!

  2. I love potatoes and enjoy them often. Nutritionally they are so good for you. How we prepare them makes all the difference. Your recipe is simple and perfect! Thanks for sharing.
