Baked Zucchini Fries

baked zucchini fries

Over the weekend I made Baked Zucchini Fries.  Last year I had great success with Baked Onion Rings so I thought these might be fun.  They make a nice snack for when you are craving something salty.  In addition to zucchini I tried sugar snap peas.  Instead of the traditional marinara sauce I used my favorite salsa,  Frontera Chipotle Salsa.

The last month was a hard one.  I had a huge event at work and then Mom got really sick with an eye infection.  Things are improving but it was a scary time. I found myself returning to emotional eating or just poor eating choices in the midst of crisis.  I do so much better with a plan but am learning how to navigate those days that the plan unravels.

Over at Weight Watcher’s the tip was to treat yourself to something you love once a week.  What would you choose?  Is it salty or sweet? I am more tempted by salty things than sweet. So these Zucchini Fries hit the spot within my Weight Watcher’s plan.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has
    a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
    it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions
    to help protect against content from being stolen?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
