Zucchini Spears! Mix them in with your jalapeno poppers, stuffed mushrooms, and sweet potato fries for a killer appetizer platter.
Going into this holiday season there will be plenty of occasions for gathering and sharing food. It is awful to walk away from those feeling either overstuffed on foods high in taste but low in nutrients. Worse yet, trying to restrict what you eat and feeling deprived. When we walk away feeling deprived the backlash or the “eff it” effect is usually lurking in the shadows waiting for us to fall face first into a pile of fudge.
In our nutrition modules we practice habits that help us get up from a meal feeling satisfied and healthy. Accomplishing this feeling during the holidays can seem like a challenge with so many temptations laden with the ultra-palatable appetite stimulating sugar, fat, and salt combo.
This recipe of zucchini spears with a homemade ranch dip still brings in a lot of those qualities we search for in a treat (crunchy texture, cool creamy dip) with the added benefit of getting more veggies into your meal! Also, they are very easy to make… Get cookin’!
