Fried Food Makes You Depressed
There are times that I crave fried food whether i is a good batch of french fries or fried chicken, there are days that I just have to have something fried. I especially love when restaurants offer fried vegetables as an appetizer such as fried broccoli or fried zucchini, definitely is a way to get me to eat my veggies! When biting into a piece of crispy fried food, the sensation of that audible crunch is so satisfying. I also love the moistness of the food that has been fried. A good example of that is fried chicken versus chicken that has been cooked in the oven. The fried chicken is crispy on the outside but moist on the inside.
