The Zucchini Recipe You Didn’t Know You Needed

For some strange reason, Summer and fried foods go hand in hand. I find it strange that during the season we are regularly rocking bikinis and tiny tops, it’s a tradition to consume incredibly greasy food that leaves you feeling bloated and, if you’re me, in need of a bed to lie down in as soon as possible.

The next time you have the urge to eat something savory, crispy, and crunchy, let these baked zucchini chips curb your deep-fried cravings. You won’t believe these easy crisps weigh in under 100 calories. Make sure you keep friends close when you bake these up ¡ª you’ll be tempted to eat the whole tray once they’re out of the oven.
