For most of my pregnancy with Daevyd I was on a raw foods diet, but towards the end, I ate cooked foods. I loved to prepare oven fries with cashew cheese sauce and to this day Daevyd loves when I prepare them.
I love to grow my own zucchini, one plant can yield so much that most time I have to share with friends, the yield is just too much for our small family. Making baked zucchini fries is a wonderful way to use up surplus zucchini. Well, these crispy zucchini fries are super healthy, low in carb, calories and they are delicious served with marinara sauce or avocado mayo. It is best to buy organic zucchini because some zucchini are genetically modified and here in the USA, there are no labeling laws implemented.
