These breadcrumb, flaxseed and nutritional yeast coated zucchini fries are baked in the oven and as delicious as they are good for you.
Let’s get this party started.
Un buen desayuno. <–I doubled majored in Spanish in college and haven’t used a drop of it since. Kind of tempted to write a whole post in Spanish one day. That could be fun.
- grape nuts cereal
- a chopped up juicy pear
- maple syrup
Delicious, but I was hungry by 11:30. I always have this problem with yogurt. Some people say protein heavy breakfasts leave them full longer. Not me though. Bring on the carbs!
Lunch was pretty random. I opened the fridge to see 2 lone zucchini in the produce drawer. That was it. Hmm…
A few minutes later, I found myself battering, dipping and rolling zucchini fries in a delicious combination of bread crumbs, ground flax seed and nutritional yeast.
Then I proceeded to eat an entire zucchini in the form of healthy zucchini fries by myself right out of the oven.
After a few pictures of course for their blog debut.

I guess there are worse “fries” out there to eat an entire tray of, right?
Since lunch basically consisted of one big vegetable, a snack was soon to follow.
Good ‘ole PB&J.
After work I went grocery shopping.
I was hungry, without a list and had no plan for dinner.
Somehow, I managed to avoid the disaster that was pointing to and walked away only $93 poorer and with the ingredients for a quesadilla dinner.
Mushroom + onion + cheddar quesadillas with some tomato & avocado for good measure.
Thoroughly enjoyed on the couch, while watching the second episode of Madmen on Netflix, our new obsession.
Loving it so far.
It’s funny yet kind of weird/quirky.
I think it’s more my cup of tea than Ulysses’ but, I’ve endured enough episodes of 24 for it to be my turn to pick.
