I am always looking for healthy snacks that taste good and fill me up!  A lot of those end up being baked veggies.  It’s been awhile since I’ve had this as a snack, and the other day, I came across this pin:

It reminded me of how yummy this snack really is, so naturally, I made some and wolfed it down!  Carrots and zucchini are both extremely good for you and have some of the following health benefits.

  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1.) Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
