Zucchini Chips

Kale chips are so two thousand and late. Oven Baked Zucchini Chips are the new hip chip without the need for dip. Why am I not a rapper, already?

This easy-to-make recipe is courtesy of my stateside dietitian friends, Lyssie and Tammy Lakatos a.k.a. The Nutrition Twins. According to them, 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. Perfect for this time of year!
