How can I add more veggies to my diet, you ask? Bake them! I find that many recipes adapt well to having grated or mashed veggies added to them while still remaining true baked goods. I've mentioned before that I like to have my cake and eat it too, so I am always trying to "healthify" traditional recipes to make them a lot closer to guilt-free. Well, here's one for you - a gluten, grain and dairy-free banana bread with zucchini hiding inside, and of course, covered in chocolate. This recipe has protein, good fats and a bunch of fibre, along with the protective phytonutrients from zucchini. The chocolate is a must as it adds a bit of sweetness and will help lift your mood.
