PALEO ZUCCHINI CHIPS RECIPE

PALEO ZUCCHINI CHIPS RECIPE
Ingredients:

  1. One Zucchini (The larger the better, to counter shrinkage)
  2. Paleo friendly cooking spray
  3. Salt & Pepper

Method

  1. Slice your Zucchini thin. I would say 1/4 to 1/8 of an inch. You can use a food processor, but depending on your slicer, it can end up a little too thin.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. That is around 100-105 degrees centigrade.
  3. Spray your baking sheet with your paleo friendly cooking spray.
  4. Lay out all the chips and spray cooking sprat lightly on the chips. Alternatively you could just toss it in some Coconut oil
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes to two hours, or until they get to the right level of crispiness for you.
  6. Eat within two to three hours.

Sun Tea

Who doesn’t like sun tea!

Natural, no artificial ingredients and pennies per glass.

I like to use small jars that I clean in the dishwasher and then put parchment or wax paper in the lid (to prevent any lingering odors from the product that was in them). I use filtered water and your favorite tea bags ( I make the tea strong because it is poured over lots of ice later) and one or two fresh mint or lemon balm crushed or torn leaves placed in the water as well. Place outside and let the sun do it’s job. I use the small jars and date them so I know the tea doesn’t get old. Easier to put in the dishwasher as well since individual serving!

Once ready, fill a large tall glass with ice to the top, place another crushed or torn mint or lemon balm leaf on top of the ice, add sugar, dash of lemon or lime juice (and if appropriate your favorite alcoholic beverage) and pour the tea over a mesh strainer!

Enjoy.
