Baked Zucchini Fries

IMG_4767

As my latest contribution to EcoSalon.com, I created an alternative to fast-food French fries. These spicy zucchini fries are baked to cut fat grams and are without the potato to avoid a carb overload. While zucchini fries aren’t as firm as traditional fries, they hold their own quite well and taste wonderful when baked with spices. They are a mindless treat you won’t feel guilty finishing all on your own. For a homemade ketchup complement, make my slimmed down version

Zucchini: has only 36 calories and 10% of the recommended daily allowance of dietary fiber in just one cup, lowers cholesterol by attaching to bile acids and aiding in digesting fat, contributes to “regularity”, prevents cancer with its high antioxidant content, aids prostate health, is high in manganese (19% of the recommended daily allowance in one cup), lowers blood pressure, is anti-inflammatory with its vitamin A and C content, and prevents heart attack and stroke.

Enjoy!!
