Cheesy Coconut Bacon Fries

This may sound weird coming from a vegan, but I love Cheesy Bacon Fries. Cheese. Coconut bacon. Fries. All vegan, all delicious!

Okay so maybe not as healthy a side dish as steamed broccoli, but who the heck can eat steamed broccoli everyday? Not me! Although I will admit, I do love steamed broccoli, especially with lots of salt and pepper. 

Besides, sometimes you don’t want healthy. You want hot and delicious and comforting. Especially after being outside on a day like this…

This was Sunday, after the snow stopped falling and the sun came out. This is one of the things I love most about Colorado – You’ll have a snowy, stormy day that gives you all the excuse you need to snuggle up on the couch with your dogs and a good book, and then the next day you can throw on a layer or two and get back outside! You know, burn some calories so that when you get back home you can eat these fries guilt-free!

The cold snowy weather is also an excellent excuse to dress your dogs up in sweaters, but that’s a topic for another day.

And speaking of cold, I just had to share this, taken on my way to work last Thursday morning.4 degrees is seriously freaking COLD!

    Shoes! If it’s a food reward, then maybe a box of earlth balance macarnoni and cheese!

    PB Cap’n Crunch with vanilla almond milk. A big, big bowl!

    Oh, yeah, I’m with AnnMarie on the Earth Balance mac and cheese! but those fries may rival that.

      So far I’ve liked everyone’s ideas!

    Those fries look AWESOME! I actually have not tried coconut bacon, so I guess this is a good reason to, right? As for rewarding myself, I usually go with something cosmetic–nail polish, makeup, or a new perfume. Nothing make you feel good after a workout like putting on something pretty!
