Zucchini Crisps

A plate of Zucchini Crisps

Zucchini Crisps have been one of my favorite snacks lately. I love how they are healthy, crispy and very easy to make. Did you know that zucchini is one of the very low-calorie vegetable, just 17 calories in 100grams? These zucchini crisps are the perfect addition to summer dishes. Its dipped in olive oil which benefits skin cancer and also is perfect with this zucchini because it fills you up. Did you know black pepper, although in small amount, has health benefits too? Black pepper is good for digestive function because consuming black pepper allows hydrochloric  acid levels to rise in the stomach.
