Veggie Fries

Did you know that the aromatic herbs we usually use to add flavor to our meals are some of the most healing foods available to us?

Oregano, thyme, rosemary, and sage are powerful disease-fighting foods that each have a different healing focus. When you eat all of them regularly, their individual properties complement each other, enhancing their ability to defend against pathogens in the body, like Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, streptococcus, E. Coli, H. pylori, C. difficile, MRSA, and fungus.

In my new book Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones Your Love With The Hidden Healing Powers of Fruits and Vegetables, I share that aromatic herbs can almost be considered wild foods, even when cultivated. Their nutrient profile is especially robust and important for anyone who is struggling with a chronic illness or symptom. It's a wonderful gift that these foods also taste so good and can make a simple meal into a gourmet masterpiece!

Oregano, thyme, rosemary, and sage together have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties that can help with hundreds of health conditions and symptoms, including small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), peptic ulcers, strep throat, food allergies, Lyme disease, ear infections, sinusitis, diverticulitis, vertigo, ringworm, eye infections, respiratory infections, rashes, abdominal pain, dizziness, fatigue, blisters, excess mucus, neuralgia, flatulence, itching, nausea, edema, herpes, and gum infections.

Not only do these aromatic herbs offer you and your loved ones support for hundreds of health challenges, they also help to bring calm and peace when you are feeling chronically overstimulated, stressed out, and emotionally overreactive. They also help us to adapt along with the quickly changing world we are living in today, reminding us where we've come from and who we can still become.

Sage, oregano, rosemary, and thyme are also especially beneficial when used raw in salads, dressings, dips, water, juices, smoothies, and other drinks. You can also steep them in hot water to make medicinal teas. Experiment with all the ways you can use these herbs, and most of all, try to keep them all in your diet every week or as often as possible.

Herb Battered Root Vegetable Fries


These may be the best veggie fries you'll ever eat. The trick is to boil the root vegetables and then shake them vigorously before baking. The herbs and garlic generously coat the outside and the smudged edges will turn crispy in the oven. If you're pressed for time, you can omit the extra steps and send them straight to the oven, though those few extra minutes will yield truly amazing results. Make a big enough batch to share--these won't last long!

Ingredients:

3 pounds assorted root vegetables (such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, and celery root)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons finely minced garlic
1 tablespoon each finely minced sage, oregano, rosemary, and thyme

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Peel and slice the root vegetables into "fries." Transfer the vegetable fries to a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Boil the fries for 5 to 7 minutes, until just cooked through but not soft. (Watch carefully so as not to overcook.) Drain the water.

Add the coconut oil, sea salt, garlic, and herbs to the fries and stir briefly. Cover the pot and shake vigorously until the fries are well mixed with their edges slightly mashed.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Arrange the fries on the tray so none are overlapping. Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Remove when the edges turn golden and crispy.
