Well guys, we celebrated another amazing Zucchini Week! Thank you all for the inspiration for these new zucchini recipes, and for tuning in all week while I made a mess of my kitchen with my favorite summer veggie. It was SO much fun. But, because I can never have too much zucchini (and apparently neither can you) I rounded up ALL of my zucchini recipes into one place.

That’s right, here are the 26 healthy zucchini recipes on Ambitious Kitchen. Scroll on through, pick your favs, and let me know what you decide to make!

Sweet potato zoodle bowls with saucy turmeric coconut milk sauce and a hint of peanut flavor. The sauce is SO amazing you’ll want to lick the bowl clean!

Well it’s officially the end of zucchini week. Abra and I really had a delicious week here baking with green things and spiralizing our hearts out and we hope you loved it too. I also had a wedding freakout about how expensive things are getting.

Everyone says it’s going to be perfect come the day of, but whoa. What the hell? This shit is crazy. Tony and I have this amazing, beautiful life together and can have it without a giant party. In fact this giant party of a wedding is just causing me a ridiculous amount of stress. I 100% understand why people hire wedding planners now. I’m going out of my damn mind.

Ok, moving on. Hah.

Fluffy whole wheat zucchini bread pancakes with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. These pancakes taste like a slice of your favorite classic zucchini bread. Add chocolate chips or pecans if you’d like!

I know I said that I was going to bring you a savory recipe today, but pancakes were on my mind. So what’s a girl to do but bring ya the goods.

Side note: I just started watching This is Us and I’m completely obsessed. I know I’m a little late to the game, but after getting Hulu (strictly for Handmaid’s Tale), I found myself searching for other good shows. AND THIS IS US IS SO GOOD.

Paleo Zucchini Banana Bread Bars with chocolate chips are the BEST way to enjoy a healthier treat when you have a sweet tooth. They also make a great snack since they’re packed with fiber and protein. 

WELCOME TO ZUCCHINI WEEK 2017. I’m so excited we’re doing this again!

If you’re wondering what in the hell zucchini week is, well it’s basically where I bring you zucchini recipes every day this week (except Friday). We’re talking snacks, breakfast, dinner and desserts.

I know you’re probably like, why zucchini week out of all the things?! Frankly because I know what it feels like to have a real out of control zucchini problem.

Juicy gluten free peach crisp with a crunchy pecan oat topping and a drizzle of the easiest homemade dairy free caramel. You’re going to LOVE this summertime dessert. Don’t forget the ice cream!

Hope the weekend is treating you well and you’re ready for some down time (and perhaps a little baking) the rest of the day.

If there’s one thing better than hanging out all day on the patio during the summer with a few glasses of white wine and a charcuterie board in front of your face, it’s definitely anything baked with peaches.

I just got back from New York and am feeling AMAZING after a beautiful time with my Under Armour Women fam. Truth be told it was only my second time in New York City. You’d think that by how much I love Chicago and how big of a city it is that I would have been to New York more. For some reason though, work just never seems to bring me out to the East Coast.

But this city wraps you in its arms and sweeps you up into the busyness. The people are the veins of the city, giving it life and energy everywhere you turn. The rush of people, the attitude, and the hustle is different than what I’m used to, yet somewhat addicting in a way I wouldn’t have expected.

Happy Wellness Wednesday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week so far. I landed in NYC late last night after a couple days of recipe-testing at AK HQ, and I couldn’t be more excited to share all of the new recipes with you guys (Abra and I had trouble just fitting them all into the upcoming weeks!).

If you know me at all, you know I LOVE Trader Joe’s. Not only do I find it less expensive than most grocery stores here in Chicago, but I love their fun, new products and bopping around in those cute little red carts. Of course, it’s essential to avoid the Trader Joe traffic so I find that early morning shopping is best.

Gorgeous roasted strawberries paired with creamy goat cheese and fresh basil on top of crispy crostini. An incredible summer appetizer that’s perfect for entertaining! 

We’re already in the middle of summer and I feel like time is flying. Anyone else? I forget how fast it goes when each week brings something different and the sun stays out till 9PM. I’m so lucky to be spending this summer traveling, spending time with people I love, and of course cooking and eating delicious food.
