    i would grill the chicken tenders or use chik’n pieces. for the fries i would saute red potatoes sliced and have a kale salad instead of the coleslaw…

  2. Robn says:

    I would replace the chicken with grilled portabella mushroom,frenchfries w/a baked sweet potato,coleslaw with broccoli coleslaw, and pita bread

  3. Flo says:

    - Fried Chicken: I would take the skin off of the fried chicken and bake it with garlic powder and peppers as the seasoning.

    – Gravy: I would bake the chicken in tin foil to allow the juices to collect in the foil. Those natural juices would serve as the gravy, not that shit that SURELY got gluten it in pictured above.

    – Potato Fries: Instead of making fries, I would roast the potato wedges and season them lightly with cumin, oregano and curry, with a dash of sea salt!

    – Coleslaw: It’s straight, as long as the veggies are fresh!

    And, voila! An unhealthy plate is now HEALTHY!

    Take that suckasssss!

    P.S. I’m not on twitter, so I can’t follow ya’ll there. xoxoxoxoxo

    Grilled chicken, baked potato and a side of salad! I think you can nix the bread in this instance since this should fill you up. If you must have bread, make it whole grain vs. white bread.

  7. Maleka says:

    I love your show! Here’s how I would make this meal healthy:
    -nicely battered fried tofu with a braggs, vegannaise, and little bit of vinegar dipping sauce
    -roasted fingerling potatoes
    -raw coleslaw with shredded fresh summer squashes, red cabbage, etc.. and little lemon juice dressing
    -a homemade whole grain biscuit

    Thank you!

    I would use all the elements of the meal. Instead of eating fried chicken, I would bake the chicken, using healthier parts like the breast. Then, I would make homemade fries by using a fresh potato, cut it into strips (keeping the skin on), lightly season, and bake it in the oven as well. If toast is needed I would use whole wheat/whole grain bread. Last, I would eliminate the dipping sauces, but if they are essential making one from scratch using low fat ingredients is definitely a healthier option.

    I would probably add a vegetable or leafy green such as spinach to get a least a serving in.

  9. Kevina says:

    I would switch the french fries with some yummie & healthy baked sweet potato fries. And then take some lean boneless chicken & stuff it with low-fat ricotta cheese, spinach, and grape tomatoes(cut up). To mimic the crunchiness of the fried chicken, you could coat the chicken with panko bread crumbs & sear it in some olive oil before putting it in the oven. The stuffing inside the chicken would replace the dipping sauce.

    French fries- replaced with sweet potato fries baked in the oven
    Fried battered chicken strips- replaced with grilled chicken fingers or I would use may whah vegan chicken strips
    Full fat dipping sauce- replaced with a veganese & honey mustard sauce
    Cole Slaw- would be made with veganese & a touch of apple sauce
    Slice of bread-replaced with healthy low fat corn bread made with apple sauce and whole kernel corn

  11. I served with a little sprinkle of himalayan salt, 2 sprays of Braggs and a tiny drizzle of raw agave nectar.
