When you've got an abundance of zucchini in your garden and you're looking for new zucchini recipes to try, pull this one out. It's a nice complement to chicken parmesan and Italian bread.
Baked Zucchini Chips
* 3 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch chips
* 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
* 2 Tbsp. olive oil
* Maldon sea salt or kosher salt and pepper to taste
OPTIONAL FOR PHASE 3 or 4 add * 2 oz. crumbled goat cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss zucchini slices with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread out on in a single layer on a jelly roll pan. Roast 7 minutes. Turn zucchini over. Roast another 7-8 minutes.
FOR PHASE 3 or 4 toss with goat cheese and serve immediately.

We aren't supposed to in phase 1 or 2 unless your coach has offered you the restricted foods like the IP bars, pancakes/crepes, cereal, etc. These do use real sugars, mostly from agave and brown rice syrup.

I've been eating pretty well, but I don't have enough time to eat a salad 2 times a day (sounds stupid, I know) - are there serious consequences of missing a salad every day?
Congrats on the new house! I can understand being so busy with that going on!
