Baked Parmesan Zucchini Chips

Baked Parmesan Zucchini Chips

In a world where everything is deep fried with refined oils and packed with copious amounts of saturated fats, it can be hard to curb those temptations and cravings for foods that do little to nothing beneficial for our bodies, but thankfully it’s not impossible! It’s all just a matter of getting creative and open to alternatives! 

Let’s use french fries and chips as an example. While undeniably tasty and technically made from potatoes, they offer us next to nothing in nutritional value. What benefits their original form could give as, has been absolved with ridiculously high amounts of sodium and pro-inflammatory ingredients such as processed vegetable and seed oils that take an incredibly deadly toll on our blood pressure. 

If you’re able to take the time to cook in your kitchen, avoiding fryers, using virgin olive or avocado oils, and choosing your carbs wisely is a very good start! Check out our recipe for Baked Zucchini Chips, for an excellent tasty and filling alternative.
