We all need a little excitement in our lives, so how about bringing some to your Thursday lunch or dinner?!

Hello, zucchini! Putting aside zucchini’s delicious, crunchy flavor, it is low in calories. A whole cup of zucchini only contains 35 calories. Plus, it’s rich in vitamins A and C which serve as powerful antioxidants AND anti-inflammatory agents, helping to prevent flus and colds and other diseases that exhaust you. Zucchini’s fiber helps lower your cholesterol.

Pair these yummy Oven-Baked Zucchini Chips with a grilled chicken sandwich or any lunch or dinner entrée!
