The thing I love about zucchini, like many vegetables, is that when you cook them, they develop a sweetness that can help you wean off sugar. In fact, when I feel a sugar craving coming on, I make zucchini or other squash because it really satisfies the craving.

Ingredients [Serves 4]

3 zucchinis
2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice, fresh squeezed
1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
Sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt) to taste
Black pepper to taste


Cut zucchinis into little pieces.

In a skillet, heat 1 tbsp. of coconut oil over a medium heat. Add half the zucchini pieces, and toss in the pan to coat with the oil. Cook zucchini until golden brown, about 5 minutes or so (more or less), and place in a mixing bowl.

Add the remaining zucchini, and do the same (add a little more coconut oil if necessary).

Transfer all the zucchini to the mixing bowl, and then add lemon juice and thyme. Add sea salt and pepper to taste, mix, serve, and enjoy!
