Sweet potato fries brushed with coconut oil and baked, then a bit of sea salt added, yum!

thanks, this looks like a great idea for those overripe bananas that I tend to freeze and forget about.

the popcorn one sounds interesting, not a big fan of it myself though! carrot sticks and home-made dips; and cutting up root veg thinly, like sweet potato etc; and making your own crisps thanks!

I test drove the ice cream, one with peanut butter, and one without, I love them both. I will try the corn chips, this would certainly be less fat!

I like all of that lot!

That had me laughing out loud.

I'd heard that this was something to do with black (and white) animals not showing up well in photos…

Thank you for the article.
