Oh Parsnip Fries! Where have you been all my life?
No, seriously. Why have I never eaten a parsnip?
I have no idea, but I stumbled upon these guys (not literally) while looking for vegetables that are higher in carbohydrates to help fuel me through my floor-sweeping, baby-chasing, laundry-toting days. Me and my orange hands need something besides carrots and sweet potatoes to eat. Parsnips and their lack of beta carotene fit the bill, so let’s do this!
(To the paleo/primal curious and my gluten-free friends, it took me a while to figure out that I feel crummy if I go too low with carbohydrates.)
