Healthy Low-Carb Fries (Easy & Fast Recipe)

Eating fries when you have type 2 diabetes (or want to eat low-carb) is impossible.

No product is unhealthier than fries if you want to improve your diet. And pretty much everyone on Earth knows that fries are anything but healthy.

Fortunately, this doesn't mean you can't eat fries for the rest of your life.

Here I give you my recipe for low-carb fries. Both delicious and healthy! This way you can still enjoy your 'fries' without sacrificing your health.


You can now also buy low-carb french fries in supermarkets. But because it is not fresh, the taste is sometimes a bit disappointing.

This is regardless of whether you make it in the oven or in the airfryer.

That's why I recommend making your low-carb fries yourself. Not only will you be 100% sure that no chemical preservatives have been added...

...but also that it is the freshest (and tastiest) in terms of taste.

There are several vegetables that you can use as a base for your low-carb fries. Think of:

  • Celeriac
  • Rutabaga
  • Zucchini

In this recipe I use rutabaga. This has - in my opinion - the best structure for low-carb fries.
