Skinny Zucchini Fries

We’re the first to admit that any time we tell our clients they can eat fries, they get a big smile on their faces.  And although we let them know it’s OK to occasionally indulge in the deep-fried French fries that most people think of, we also get such a kick out of showing them other delicious but waist-line friendly fries that they can easily make at home–and that they actually love and end up (many times!) loving more than the actual traditional French fries!

While writing our latest book The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure we got a bit more obsessed (oy! 😉 ) with finding ways to make sure everyone loves veggies and we started to make a lot of veggie fries. Remember these 45 Calorie Fries, our 94 Calorie Traditional Fries and our Sweet Potato FriesWell, these here are another skinny veggie fry that we’re a bit in love with and think you’ll be too!  Can’t wait for you to give these little lovelies a taste! Say hello to our Skinny Zucchini Fries and please let us know what you think in the comments below!
