You might be young, and in love with all foods that come out of a deep fryer, but you do have to be careful. Fried foods in moderation are one thing, but too much is not only going to make you overweight, it’s going to mess with your health. Stay working on staying healthy when you are young, and you are setting yourself up for success as you get older.
The Trouble With Fried Foods
There is no denying that you can toss just about anything in some batter and fry it, and it’s going to taste delicious. Sometimes you can even skip the batter. The process of deep frying food just does something special that turns the mundane into the marvelous. Don’t believe me? Whip up some tempura batter and use it to deep fry a brussel sprout. Guess what? It tastes good. So what’s the problem?
The main problem is with the frying oil. If not careful with the type you buy, you are filling your body, and eventually your arteries, with saturated fats that mess with blood flow. You can have some control over this if you deep fry at home. But if out and about, and ordering fried fish, you have no idea what they are using back there.
So one solution is to buy a deep fryer to use at home. You can satisfy your fried food cravings knowing that you are using a “heart healthy” frying oil. Still, this should still be done in moderation because you are still introducing unnecessary calories and fat into your diet.
Another solution is really cool, using technology to help get the fried flavor you want without the oil. An air and oil less fryer works with extreme heat to crisp up the outside the way hot oil does, and cook the food from the inside out.
How Does the Food Taste?
Surprisingly good without all of the fat from the oil. The intense heat does a nice job of crisping first, while still allowing the inside to cook. Is it as tasty as fried food in oil? Yes, just different. Cooking oil does give food a distinct flavor, but if you lightly brush your food with a small amount before placing it inside of the air oil less deep fryer you can still get it. Plus, you can add more seasoning when you use the oil free fryer since you don’t have to worry about making the cooking oil dirty.
You are not too young to be thinking about your health, and the way in which your diet is affecting it. Keep your fast food to a minimum and change the way you are having fried foods prepared at home and you are going to feel a major difference.
