Baked Zucchini Chips

Baked Zucchini Chips
Well I said last week that I'd probably be up to my old tricks by now. But much to my own surprise, I decided to try another 'healthy' recipe I've been thinking about - zucchini chips! If you ever look at the sidebar of my blog that lists 'popular recipes' you will see that Apple Chips are number one. They have been for a while now, but the funny part is that they are number one by a landslide. Mr. Vittles occasionally looks over my shoulder while I'm reviewing my blog's stats, and he is always so amused by the fact that the Apple Chips completely dwarf every other post. This fact is absurdly evident by a bar graph that shows the top 10 posts' all-time number of views... basically one long bar, with a whole bunch of short ones beneath it. Up until this week (when Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips suddenly blew up on Pinterest) the Apple Chips had four times more views than the 2nd most popular post. So... in light of people's apparent interest in this recipe, Mr. Original Recipe

Cranberry and Avocado Salad with Candied Spiced Almonds and Sweet White Balsamic Vinaigrette Once you try this delicious salad you’ll find yourself craving it again and again. It’s bright, fresh and beyond versatile. By Chris Scheuer Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread I love zucchini, for a number of reasons.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burritos My blog is getting to the age where there are an awful lot of wonderful recipes buried deep in the annals of sub par photography and rushed recipe write-ups. Because we eat with our eyes, it is hard to imagine why anyone would attempt to make this recipe after viewing the first photo here. But they have. And everyone who has tried this meal loves it every bit as much as I do. It is a shame how many times I’ve made this recipe since initially posting that recipe without taking another photograph. Admittedly, though, I find burritos to be tough things to stage for pictures.

A Cool Snack Treat grapes + skewers + a few hours in the freezer = Yum!!! Laurel On Health Food I have to say, this stuffed peppers recipe is the business!

The Benefits of Organic Hemp Milk Though its name might be a bit misleading, organic hemp milk is a perfectly legal, not to mention healthy, alternative for vegetarians or non vegetarians. Produced from the seeds of the hemp plant, this milk has only begun to be sold in the United States within the past few years. One concern that people have about organic hemp milk is that it might contain some of the chemical THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is found in marijuana. Rest assured that this ingredient is not present or associated with hemp milk. Another concern is that the hemp seeds must be imported since it’s currently not legal to grow the hemp plant in the US. Some hemp milk producers have to rely on obtaining hemp seeds from farmers in Canada or Europe, where the growth of hemp plants for oil or milk is perfectly legal.
