Are sweet potato fries a healthy substitute for french fries? What's a good, healthy recipe for them?

Not really: The issue with fries is the fact that whether regular potato or sweet potato, they are generally prepared by deep frying which infuses a lot of fat into the fry. A better way to prepare them is to use raw potatoes so you know what you are starting with (prepackaged sometimes have salty and fatty additives). Then bake the fries instead of frying them. Good taste and healthier. ...Read more

What's the goodness of herbal tea ( mint, anis seeds, or vervain for example) sugar-free?

For enjoyment: Regular teas and typical herbal teas, made from usual tea leaves, are for people to enjoy. The caffeine level is usually low, so teas are not too stimulating.

Please describe the net protein content of pork rinds/cracklings?

Please describe the net protein content of pork rinds/cracklings?

Pork rinds.: Equal in calories to potato chips. While chips have no protein, and have an equal number of grams of carbs and fat, pork rinds have no carbs, and instead have protein in equal ratio to the fat grams. Like bacon. 50% protein and 50% fat. There is no downside, unless you don't eat meat (or pork). You are getting protein versus starch and less salt. The downside: don't stay as fresh as long! ...Read more
