Healthy Recipe: Crisp Parmesan Zucchini and Squash Sticks


These crisp, crunchy zucchini and squash sticks are seriously one of my favorite side dishes! Not only are they delicious and healthy, but they're super quick and easy to make! Even the kids will enjoy these babies! 
  • 2 zucchinis & 2 squash, quartered lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on a baking sheet; set aside. (don't forget to use the cooling rack over your baking sheet to place your zucchinis/squash, or else the veggies will be limp and soggy, rather than crisp and crunchy))
  • In a small bowl, combine Parmesan, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Place zucchini onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan mixture. Place into oven and bake until tender, about 15 minutes. Then broil on top rack for 2-3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
  • Serve as soon as they're finished and add a garnish of parsley if you'd like.

*And be sure to really keep an eye on them once you switch your oven over to broil. Leaving them in for just one minute too long will burn the Parmesan cheese on top! (I was guilty the first time around, but you live and you learn, right!?)  Hopefully you will learn from my mistakes!

But these really are delicious! Be sure to comment below and let me know what you think!
I found this recipe over at Damn Delicious! Definitely check out her website! She's got TONS of great recipes!

What Does a Beachbody Coach Do? How much Money do Beachbody Coaches Make? Get a Sneak Peek into the Business!

Have you seen posts about these Health & Fitness Challenge Groups that I do and wonder what exactly I do as an online health and fitness Coach?  Curious how I make money doing it and what kind of money you can make doing this part-time or even full-time?  
Well, I am super excited to start my *OPEN HOUSE* group on Tuesday, May 26th where you can have a glimpse into what exactly I do as a coach, how I make money doing it and get all of your questions answered.
It's been such an amazing experience that I feel like I would be selfish not to share the opportunity with you all and it is something that I am very passionate about!
If you want to join the informational group, simply click the link below and join. Feel free to also invite any friends or family members who you think may be interested in making some extra money from home, helping others and/or starting their own business while improving your own health and fitness at the same time.
My only regret with becoming a coach so far has been that I didn't get started sooner!!

What you need to know BEFORE becoming a Beachbody Coach!!

Interested in Joining my Team? Fill out the Coach Application below and I will contact you with details!

Try Shakeology for 7 Days -- Free Sample included

I've heard too many people tell me that they just don't have the money to spend on Shakeology®! And believe me, I totally get it, because I used to say the same thing...and then I tried it and haven't gone a day without it in almost 2 years!

I love this stuff for so many reasons!!

1.  I'm a busy mom, so any meal I can blend up in 60 seconds is a winner!

2. ShakeO gives me more energy than my morning coffee (plus there's no crash)

3. It's ALL natural, organic, gluten and soy free, no artificial sweeteners and is packed full of heathy ingredients like Chia, Acai, quinoa, flax, maca root and so many more! (70+ SUPERfoods, baby!) Oh and did I mention you can say goodbye to your daily vitamin!?

4. It's given my metabolism a boost like I've never experienced before! Adding a shake to my daily routine allows me to get in those 5 smaller meals a day vs. just 3 bigger ones. ('Hasta la vista' Baby weight!)

Okay, okay...I could go on and on with why I love this stuff, but it won't help you out at all unless you actually get to experience it for yourself! So this is where you can take advantage of this opportunity to try it out for a whole week for just $35!! Watch the video for all the details and let me know if you want into my group! I only have a limited number of samples, so please message me ASAP if you want in!

I can't wait for you to try it!! I know you'll love it as much as I do after you see and feel the benefits of it!! I'm so much healthier and in better shape AFTER kids (4 now) than I was BEFORE kids and I owe a lot of my progress to Beachbody and especially Shakeology!!
