Whole Wheat Protein Zucchini Bread

Hey, hey!

How are you all doing today?! (If you haven’t yet, read about change your thoughts change your body <–it’ll help you have a great day, no matter what! :) )

I am doing great today for many reasons:

  • Today is like a Friday for me (and only a half day of work)
  • I get to teach BodyPUMP at 5:45 a.m. (I LOVE teaching early classes!)
  • I get to see all my sisters this afternoon in…… (can you guess where?!!) HINT.
  • And today is Thankful Thursday :)

Wow. I feel blessed and happy!

Another reason I am super happy today? I get to munch on my homemade, delicious whole wheat protein zucchini bread.

(Hello long name).

You know how in the Disney movie, “Hercules,” they say he’s got it all? Well, I could say the same about this bread-it’s got it all going on!

  • low sugar
  • high protein
  • low fat
  • whole wheat
  • veggie packed
  • delicious & easy

My husband doesn’t love zucchini in stir fries, dinners, etc., so I decided to bake it up so he’d still eat it. You’ll see, once you make it, that ANYONE would eat this yummy bread right up!
