Parsnip Fries

Parsnip Fries

so… i’ve decided that making fries out of vegetables is FUN!
peel them like you would a carrot…  and slice them into strips…
spray pam on a lined cookie sheet…  and the tops of the “fries”…
add a little pepper and kosher salt
bake in the preheated oven at 425F for approximately 35-40 minutes, depending on thickness, flipping halfway through…
taa-daaaah!
1 cup cooked parsnips – 3 points
1 T ketchup – 1 point
this is my 62 yr old mother’s first time to ever enjoy a parsnip!  :)
it’s never too late to try something new!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
