Baked Garlic Wedges

It so happened today is my cheat day. No I’m not trying on any new diet but just making a conscious effort on eating heathy and in moderation. I started of my very early lunch, brunch as a matter of fact @ 1035 on a fast food. DOUBLE croissantwich turkey sausage with cold green tea AND I added a MEDIUM hashbrown to top it all off. Boy the guilt thereafter! However, a consolation came to mind that I still have the whole day to burn all that calories! Haha.

Then again I began to have a thought why not make today a cheat day where I can and want to eat all my favorite things. So I decided that from today onwards I would allow a day of cravings per week instead of scattering my cravings each day of the week. The reason being, I would know what exactly I consume and how much of what is consumed so I would not overeat. As I move on to making healthier choices I’m setting a more focused approach towards RUN2013.

Since today is cheat day I thought of sharing a healthier option of wedges. Baking your own! Yes DIY way!

Look at how crispy golden the skin and wedges turned out. Delicious isn’t it?

Baking your own can be quite a hassle I say but eating healthy is all about making an effort. Baking is definitely a thumbs up. Its one of the best alternative compared to deep-frying in terms of reducing those unhealthy fats and calories.

Garlic has many health benefits. In terms of cooking it has a distinct taste and aroma. Mix it together with potatoes how badly could it turn out (with the exception of garlic breath maybe. Haha!)?

A definite tryout! Here is a recipe where you can follow. Simple and detailed. I’m gonna bake one myself and let you guys in the know. Perhaps on my next cheat day?
