Anyone who loves food will appreciate that crunch and golden brown texture of anything fried. I mean we have discovered how to fry anything from a piece of fish, to a snicker bar. You name it, it can be fried, and it taste sooooo good! But ofcourse, there is a gigantic problem with that. Too much fried food will not only make us sick and fat. But often timesit even leads to severe ailments and DEATH! But how on earth do you just stop eating foods with that succulent crunch? Why would the creator strip us of one of the best gifts given to us? How are we suppose to live? These are all questions that I have asked myself time and time again, before I found my new best friend and solution to my fried food struggles. It is my AIR FRYER!! Now, if your anything like me at all, I'm sure your saying, "What The Heck!?!" "What do you mean Air Fryer?" And "what is it", right? Well. thats exactly how I felt before hand.
Rewind. The very first time I heard of any device like this was several years ago on the Dr. OZ show. He did a demo of a machine by TFAL called the Actifry. He described it as a fryer that would make golden brown french fries with just a spoonfull of oil. Well, honeyyyy that thing was wayy to expensive just for some darn fries. Needless to say, I never got it. Now, fast foreward a few years. One day I was surfing the web looking for creative oven fry recipes, because as you know BAKED gets boring sometimes. Anywho, while searching recipes I came acrossa link to a Phillips Brand Air Fryer on Amazon. I saw the root word " fry" and had to investigate. Well after reading the description and reviews, I was intrigued enough to do some research. This thing claimed to give your favorite food that wonderful crunch and texture without the FAT! I was NOT a believer! But now I was motivated to atleast look at other brands, how they work, amd what customers had to say about them. I found multiple Phillips models, Go Wise, Big Boss, Avalon Bay, and several other brands. Most of them with very comparable results. Good tasting Faux Fried Food ( not only fried though). Well, I decided to try it for myself, and after comparing many reviews, I went with an underdog, Avalon Bay. Despite, most of its reviewers were sent free machines for their honest reviews. All of them seemed to have been very impressed, and my thoughts were if they are giving their machines away for free, then they must really believe in their product. Oh, and the other plus was, it was priced lowest at $99
When I recieved the machine, I couldnt wait to test it. Starting with sweet potato fries, and I was AMAZED!. I have since made everything from spring rolls, to chicken strips, to bacon and zucchini. Now, dont be fooled, there wll never be an exact match for deep frying food. But to live guilt free and healthy, it's pretty darn close. You can buy cookbooks made specifically for air fryers, or you can play around with your own recipes, you can even spray or brush a little oil on your food for the extra crisp if you like. Whatever you decide, just make sure it includes buying yourself an Air Fryer. It cooks fast, it's guilt free, and the possibilities are enormous! It has certainly been a huge part of making Healthy My Choice!!!
