Ladies, this is it! News that all french fry lovers have long been wanting to hear! New Beauty reports that a study published in the journal Food Chemistry discovered that deep-frying vegetables in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) provides health benefits.
The results certainly debunk some food myths that are anti-oil frying. According to the study, frying in EVOO produces antioxidant phenol compounds in the veggies, making the body stronger in fighting diseases like cancer, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
The vegetables tested were those of the deep, colorful type—veggies that are mainly present in the health expert-approved, Mediterranean diet like tomatoes, eggplants, pumpkins, and yup—potatoes! You know what that means, right? Yaass to fries!
Now a healthier lifestyle, no longer means bland, boiled, and steamed food all day, errday. Live a little and have a dose of healthy fat in your life!
