Kale chips? Parsnip fries? Sounds weird, but FitSugar.com offers five yummy alternatives to French fries. What’s that you say? Nothing could ever replace your beloved fried potatoes? These recipes will change your mind and soon you’ll be reaching for parsnips instead of hitting up the drive-thru for your fry fix.

Another healthy fry alternative to French fries we recently discovered? Polenta fries. Buy the polenta in a tube, cut “fries,” spray pan and fries with olive oil Pam, and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. They crisp up just like potatoes!
