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.Â
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 â€œregularityâ€, 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.
