Just returned from the market, with a portion of Fries, and I have decided to share with you why it can be allright to eat fast food, and where to buy the best fries in Europe.
It all depends on Location, Location, Location!
And ingredients. Potatoes in themselves aren’t bad. (if eaten in moderation) They are quite healthy fresh. Same about fat, you need a small amout of fat, but you need the right ones: vegetable fat, not hardened, and néver trans-fat. Read your information on the food-labels and never ever buy anything containing trans-fat.
So: you do not get your fastfood at macDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken, or Burgerking, or whatever, you get your fast fix from a small company with dedication to produce good, healthy, tasty food.
I love fries, not French fries, but Belgian Fries! They are larger and taste better. If I need a Fry-fix I go to the market and get them from ”The brothers Waterloo”. The only downside: You can only get them on market days, and they’ve sold out soon after 16.15 most days.
How can they be sold out? Well, once the potatoes are finished: no more fries! All produce is fresh and unfrozen!
Let me introduce you to ”the brothers”
Here they are, on their own land, where their own potatoes are grown!
Sorting the potatoes.
Peeling the potatoes: they are placed in buckets immediately, after which the buckets will be taken to the marketstands.
Arriving early in the morning on the marketplace
The fries are made on the spot. They are fried in 100% vegetable oil, and no other foodstuffs (meat) are fried in the same frying pans. So perfectely halal if anybody ever comes to visit and wants a taste 🙂
