Why are Lord of the Fries sweet potato chips are healthier for me

Lord of the fries has been around for a few years now and I have always enjoyed eating their sweet potato fries as it is sweet and less starchy. They have loads of other offerings such as their vegan burgers and fries. I am a pescatarian by nature and enjoy these things.

I have been to their stores in Melbourne many times and enjoyed these visits. I was a bit sad though when their Elizabeth st store shut last year. But oh well these things happen. However I loved visiting their Prahran store as they had plenty of good offerings. And their store was clean. The staff there welcomed me.

These fries are healthier because they are vegan. They are freshly cooked everytime you order them and it tastes good. I love the thought of eating vegetables without all the added fat and sugar. They say that animal fat is bad for you.

Sweet potato is said to have much more energy and its low in GI. Afterwards I felt full. As a healthy nutritionist on a mission I enjoyed half the pack as a snack without sauce. I believe in eating more vegetables and fibre. This did not disappoint me. I went to the store in Melbourne Central after my appointment as I was a little bit peckish from just salad and fat burning tea.

Do try it as a snack and in fact we have attached a homemade recipe from watchmojo.com which shows you how to do this


Mr Ed’s

Mr Ed’s is a place in Flemington near Newmarket station. Here they do great coffee and breakfast and it was here that I came for a breakfast burrito which was without bacon.

The cafe is really laidback. I came here once before for their sweets. And they do stellar sweets. But this was before the team at Healthy International students was formed.

But the breakfast burrito is a much healthier option and it was really small for a mere $8. This was good for me as I was trying to lose weight and be healthier. I added the tabasco to the burrito and it increased my metabolism. I really love spicy foods.

 

They also do stellar coffees too but I was not there for that.
