I frequently get asked for ideas for starches for dinner.
Here are a few!
baked potatoes (1 small baked)
baked sweet potatoes (1 small baked)
roast potatoes (recipe below)
couscous (1/2 cup serving size)
pasta or whole wheat pasta, keeping in mind that the serving size to start with is 1/2 cup!
Be sure to have your other meal components on the side- 3-4 oz. of protein and your veggies.
When you are in a hurry and really want fries- have these on hand- Alexia brand oven fries (in freezer section, near the other fries) These are baked, not fried.
for this recipe, I recommend olive oil instead of vegetable oil
