Everyone knows someone that doesn’t like unhealthy junk food. I always admired those people, because I must say I could not survive without hamburgers or greasy pizza. This unhealthy food was on my plate at least three times a week and I couldn’t get enough of it. But how can I live without those precious dishes? I almost gave up, but then I found a secret treasure. Try your traditional fried chicken with coconut oil or baked in the oven. For an even healthier version, omit the bacon.

Fried chicken is a dish that I loved since I was a young girl and I still think about it when I go to my grandparent’s house. Unluckily, it has so many calories I avoided fried food at arm’s length. And I don’t have to anymore!
