Roasted Zucchini Sticks

Hello to all!!  I hope your weekend was wonderful, wishing everyone a good week!!

If your like me always on the look out to try new snacks,  and I am not referring to junk food snacks but Veggies snacks and if you are watching or not watching your weight, either way you will enjoy this delicious snack that I made yesterday.  Since I am on a diet, and I don’t always follow my diet,  I like adding different snacks in between meals than the usual yogurt or fruit.  Yep, on a diet pffff, I kind of put on a few pounds/kilos during the winter and need to lose them.  I have been at it for a while now, and it’s going well, ohhh I also started powering walking again, which I enjoy. The weather has been so good it is great to be outside…I tried the kickboxing exercise at home butttt hmmm I think that really isn’t for me. 🙁  But it is good to try new things so that you know which fits and which don’t right?? 🙂

So, these veggies are roasted and dipped in Italian breadcrumbs and or if you prefer you can dip them into plain breadcrumbs and just add a pinch of garlic, or onion to taste.  I sometimes dip them into Greek Yogurt just to give each bite a bit more of a boost in taste than they already have, 🙂 but believe me if you try this recipe you will just love them. 🙂  

P.S.  hardly any calories to these hehehehe



  • 2 large Zucchini sliced in strips
  • 2 Egg Whites Whisked
  • 2 1/2 cups Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups Parmesan Cheese
  • Pepper
  • Onion or Garlic Powder optional


  • In a large bowl add the Italian Seasoning, Parmesan Cheese and Pepper. Mix to combine
  • In a separate bowl whisk the Egg Whites.
  • Cut Zucchini into stripes.
  • Dip Zucchini stripes into the Egg Whites, and then dip into the Italian Seasoning.
  • In a large baking pan oil brush the pan before placing the baking paper. (this helps the paper to stay in one place).
  • Then place the zucchini in a pre- heated oven and bake for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees, depending on your oven. They should turn out golden brown and crispy. 🙂 You can top off the Zucchini with either Garlic or Onion powder before you place it into the oven, but if your seasoning is intense then there is no need to add any extra seasoning. unless of course you want the taste even stronger!! 🙂 it is completely up to you 🙂

      Yeah, Dee I tried it but I just couldn’t get into it…But I absolutely agree that you need to try new things so that you can see what makes you feel good. I am back to power walking and debating if I should pick up a step board…because I really enjoy that with music and jumping hahahha

  9. Well, done, kickboxing 🙂 It is not for everyone I have to say. I tried it couple of times and I actually like it, however when it gets too intense I am not able 😀 And courgette sticks – great idea 🙂 I should give it a go as we always have courgette at home

      I tried it but I just couldn’t get into it…I am really fan of Step with music and power walking and of course YOGAAAAA

      • You tried and that is good 🙂 So know you know what you really do not like. Ah really? I am struggling with yoga 😀 I have tried it couple of times and I always felt so horrible… so I stopped 😀 no more yoga for me 😀

      • I played tennis, power walked, did yoga for many many years but after the accident I had to stop it all…but now back to normal so I can do Yoga again but my arm won’t let me do much. I find Yoga good for my inner self. 🙂

      • You are amazing and I am happy to hear that you are able to be back! 🙂 Yes, with that I absolutely agree. I am trying now a bit of meditation and to be honest, it is not that bad… 😀 But sometimes difficult to find a corner where no one reaches me in our noisy house 😀

      • I can understand…:)

  10. Yum! Sound delicious and pretty easy to make. Can’t wait to try them!

  11. Yummy snack! I could maybe even get my kids to love zucchini!😉I’m also doing more exercising, and I also love power walking. Kickboxing is cool, I used to do Kung Fu, but that’s a long time ago, lol. I also used to love to swim but can’t do because of my shoulders. How is your arm doing? 😘

She does have many plans to choose from so check it out and see which could be good for you and not to much jumping around for the arm 🙂 Huge hugs

  13. I’ll check it out, thanks Sophie! I’ll let you know what I think!😗

  14. I quickly went over to that website and YouTube. I really like it, some are similar exercises that I do at home already. Now summer break is over and I need to get back doing a bit more again. I’ve been going to the gym with my son once a week, and I had to walk and hike a lot in Switzerland, hahaha😄
