This is definitely a myth, especially depending on who is making them. Store-bought latkes tend to be made with loads of unnecessary oil, salt, and other ingredients. If you’re having those, make sure to blot off as much oil as possible. If you’re making your own, however, you can incorporate healthier ingredients and preparation techniques so you can enjoy more latkes throughout Chanukah. Going to a party? Make extra to bring for everyone to enjoy the healthier option.
