My Coconut Oil of Choice

I'm experimenting with making zucchini fries this evening. I picked up a few In-n-Out burgers for dinner and I noticed that I had one lonely zucchini left on the kitchen counter. That's what prompted my culinary inspiration.

I like doctoring up burgers with avocado slices as well. It makes the meal more interesting and healthier as well, IMO.

I'll let you all know how the LC fries turned out later. They smell good. I can tell you that much! :-)

Update: The fries were a little too fried. I think I cooked them for slightly too long. Oh well. At least the apartment didn't burn down! :-)

9:00 am

+ The New Wowee Zowee Meal Replacement Shake - 2 oz of organic heavy cream, 3 oz of purified water, 2 scoops of natural vanilla whey protein powder, 1 scoop of Orac Energy Greens, 1 tsp of organic instant coffee, a pinch of pure stevia, and 1/4 tsp of Also Salt)

12:00 pm

+ leftover shrimp with sauteed spinach and onions

+ a tbsp. of organic coconut oil

3:30 pm

+ a shot of organic espresso

7:45 pm

+ an In-n-Out 3x3 - three hamburger patties, three slices of cheese, grilled onions and two slices of tomato

+ 3/4 of an organic avocado

+ zucchini fries


More to come ... I hope!

That's the kind that I use. :) I didn't realize that it was organic.

Harry said...

It sure is. :)

Based on my research, it's among the best out there. It's pretty reasonable (price-wise) on the 'net.

Whats cooking? can you spare the recipe for your cucumber fries? How do they taste?

Vadim said...

BTW Congratulations on your weight loss, you are doing fantastic. You are indeed a true inspiration. You have been consistent in your bloggin and your diet. Keep it up!

Harry said...

Thanks, Vadim! :-)

The zucchini fries are very easy to make.

Just slice the zucchini into the shape of a typical French Fry and cook it on the stove in some olive oil. I added sea salt, a freshly ground pepper blend and some red pepper flakes as a topping.

You just need to flip the zucchini strips to brown each side. Just don't burn them like I did!

My wife suggested that I try cooking them in the oven next time. She may be right about that. Only experimentation can tell!

BTW, I just found these zucchini fry recipes:

Take good care, Mr. V. You deserve it!

Thank you Mr Harry! I think baking them in the oven would be a great idea. I love zuchini but more often than not end up wasting them in the fridge. I will try to bake them in the oven over olive oil and make a whole batch so I wont dispose of them as usual.

Harry said...

I hope they turn out nice and tasty, Vadim! Please let me know. :-)

Harry, we make zucchini 'chips' all the time (well, not in a while), cut the zucchini in thin circles. fry and enjoy.

Harry said...

That's a great idea, Sadekat! Take note, Vadim! :-)

This past weekend we used zucchini slices as the "crust" for a pizza snack. It turned out really well! :-)

Harry said...

Thanks, Ms. V!

It's the tastiest organic coconut oil I've ever tried. I think they manufacture it in a conscientious way. A healthy product indeed. :-)
