Fried Chicken

Frying your own food doesn't have to be bad for you. So before you give your guy a hard time for munching on fried chicken, consider that he may actually be eating something that isn't as bad as you think. But here's the catch—the healthiest fried food is what you fry yourself using healthy oils, light breading, and reasonable portion sizes. So if he's prone to driving through to pick up a bucket of chicken, you may want to curb his habits and make your own. Also, try pan frying or oven baking for a crispy and even lower calorie option.
