Chicken, Broccoli, Zucchini, & Sweet Potato Fries!


I can’t lie, the photo quality in these photos are awful, but I lost my camera charger in France and will be using my cell phone until the new one gets here! Tuesday night, I made a healthy dinner for myself. I finally went to the grocery store and stocked the fridge back up with food.


For the broccoli:
I steamed four cups of broccoli, added three tablespoons of butter, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
For the Zucchini:
I seasoned the zucchini with olive oil, garlic and herb, brown sugar, and black pepper. I baked the zucchini for twenty minutes at 35o degrees.
For the Sweet Potatoes:
I chopped the sweet potatoes into slices, microwaved them for two minutes, tossed them in olive oil, garlic powder, and brwon sugar. After that, I baked them for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
For the Chicken:
I tossed he chicken in olive oil, low sodium soy sauce, brown sugar, and garlic and herb. I baked the chicken for 14 minutes at 350 degrees.


I love healthy dinners that don’t require too much time and work. This is one of them!

    That chicken looks fantastic. What kind of pan do you use?

    Olive oil and brown sugar, interesting. I love olive oil (it’s the only kind of oil allowed in my kitchen ^^) but I would never have thought to mix it with brown sugar as a vegetable seasoning. I’m going to try it !

    So this is weird but I had a dream about the headbands that you were making a month or so ago, are you still planning on selling them on Liveashore??

        Awesome! I’ll be first in line to order one! So glad you made it back safely- I almost died when I read the creepy cab ride story. It looked like a beautiful trip though

    I have been obsessed with sweet potatoes lately but I usually only add paprika and salt. I’m going to have to try adding brown sugar next time!
