Veggies in my bread…

I had Plyoburn bright and early this morning! Since it is an hour of cardio and weights, I eat my carbs before the workout and my protein immediately afterwords. This zucchini bread (and all of my muffins) are the perfect pre-workout breakfast. Then, right after class, I get a whey protein smoothie with fruit to replenish the glycogen stores quickly.

I am looking forward to having this in vanilla greek yogurt with cashew butter tomorrow morning!

  1. Sometimes it looks as if those plates are floating above the street. Haha. Are they just that light?

    That bread looks great and healthful.

  2. Whoa. It looks like I’m going to have to try this recipe, because your zuke-carrot bread ACTUALLY looks like it has VEGETABLES IN IT! <333 Whenever I make zuke bread, it dissipates into ….non-existent green flecks. 😦 Chunks, people, I want chunks!!!

  4. Tried this today again and it came out sooo good! My kids loved it! Now I need to wait for the hubby to come home and see if he likes it! I added 2 ripe bananas so it taste more like banana bread.Next time I will add walnuts!THX
