I’ve been on major Hiatus. I’m so excited to share all the new recipes that I’ve been Paleofying.
My excitement has to do with all the positive effects I’ve experienced from going primal. The fact that I’m enjoying delicious meals that are helping me feel better is awesome.
These Paleo/Primal recipes have my body looking like, and I quote from the oh so flattering teller at my bank “four kids came out of you!?”
Besides the body getting right and tight, the mind is sharp as a tack and my energy levels are skyrocketing. I can get through some of the toughest workouts, and the next day I’m spared from the usual muscle soreness. Although my sore muscles were how I knew I was really going in on my workouts, the lack there of allows me to be much more functional.
All that and I still get to keep my bacon?!
Yep I’m good right here on my Paleo-ish.
So let me get to this recipe, which is super simple and primal in all it’s ingredients. I have a special place in my tummy for all things zucchini. Since I’ve been making a concerted effort to up my veggie intake ginormously, zucchini has been my go to for all my veggie gone bad recipes. It’s flexible yet firm/stable and takes a lot of cooking before it starts to lose shape. Even after frying they still have a little crunch.
These little fries are so comforting you almost feel like you’re indulging…but you’re not. You’re eating perfectly delicious and enjoyable grub without an ounce of guilt.
I dip these zucchini fries in my Roasted Red Pepper sauce and I’m in Primal heaven!
In the video I make 3 zucchini, this recipe is for two which still is a considerable amount of fries…enough to share even…or even not, either way I’m sure you’ll enjoy eating or just salivate over my pictures of these green veggies gone bad..sort of.
