Life has been crazy this week, and I will admit that I have not gotten myself into the gym yet. But! That does not mean I give up! This fitness thing is a continuing journey and one bump in the road doesn’t mean you turn around and give up!
That being said, eating healthy is one thing that I still try to stick with at least 2 out of 3 main meals of the day (plus snacks). This side dish is so delicious and is a great way to use up all those garden vegetables! I was a little skeptical when I first made this, because I’ve never really been a huge fan of zucchini or yellow squash. Once I tried it, I was instantly hooked! I’ve seen a few variations of this same recipe on other websites, but modified it to what I had in the house and was very happy with the results!
