Coconut Fish Chips

Coconut Fish & Chips

28’s Home Nutrition Program (Stream: female, healthy weight maintenance)
Who doesn't love fish and chips? I certainly do, and I don't want to have to pass up on indulging in this favourite of mine just because I'm eating healthily. The sweet potato chips here are not only delicious but are also a wonderful source of slow-release energy, helping to prevent the blood sugar spikes linked to weight gain that can often result from eating carbohydrate-rich foods.
