Skinny Baked Mozzarella & Zucchini Sticks

_RYA0323
After the last couple days of rain & cold, I’m ready to get outdoors and soak in the sun.  Because I plan on being outdoors more than indoors, my lunch needs to be simple, light, quick, & low carb, since I’m limiting my carb intake again.  The perfect thing to make today would be my healthy (a.k.a. skinny) baked mozzarella & zucchini sticks.
These are great as an side dish, snack, or light lunch.  Kids and adults alike, love these at my house.  FYI-If your having this as your lunch, make sure to include something with protein.  For me, I drink a protein shake with my meal.  We all know how important protein is to our body and getting the proper amount is vital to our health & well being.

This recipe is different because I cut out the breadcrumbs and replaced it with flaxseed meal.  Have you heard of it before?  For those that haven’t it is quite a handy multi purpose ingredient that is used as a low carb alternative to bread.  Depending where you live, depends on who carries it.  But most grocery stores & a few discounts store do.  For me, our local Job Lots, MB, or Shaw’s carries it.  You can purchase an 16oz. bag for roughly $2.99, which isn’t bad since it’ll last you awhile.  Enough talking, now unto the recipe.

    • LOL, I felt the same way at 1st. It may not be your thing but you could use other seeds like Hemp seed, which I like a whole lot better. But haven’t tried it as a breading yet. That will be a recipe experiment I’ll be doing soon.

    • Thanks. smoothies is always a delicious way to add in your flaxseed.
      I’ve been trying to add flaxseed meal to weird things, see where I can add in some extra nutrients. So far, my favorite has been using it to make pizza stuffed portobello mushrooms. Thanks for co-hosting WW with me. I look forwards getting to know each and every one of you wonderful ladies 🙂
