So far so good, right? Today you have to add one more item to your previous two habits!

Day 3 challenge is to not eat any fried food.

How to do it?

  • With a bit of creativity, we can revamp our favourite fried foods so they can be enjoyed guilt-free. 
  • Try baking with a coating of bread crumbs instead of deep-frying. This is a great way of mimicking the crunchiness and preserving the tender texture.
    • French fries can be replaced by oven-baked yam (or sweet potato) fries. 
    • Fish and chips can be replaced by oven-baked fish that is coated with rolled oat.
    • Fried chicken can be replaced by a grilled version, opting for white meat and peeling the skin. 
    • Schnitzel can be replaced by crispy oven-baked pork chop.

Why it matters?

  • Fried foods clog arteries and lead to strokes and Alzeimer’s.
  • Clogged veins and arteries cause heart attacks.
  • The saturated fat and trans fat in deep-fried foods increase your risk for cancer and obesity.
  • Fried food is inflammatory and creates problems with joints.
