Easy Zucchini Tater Tot Recipe


Change up your tater tots for a simple new zucchini twist! These are awesome for game day appetizers, brunches and casual cocktail parties.

For the Tots:


3  cups grated zucchini (tightly packed)

1  egg

1 1/2  cups instant mashed potatoes
1  teaspoon salt and pepper
1  cup coconut oil (for pan frying)

For dipping:

1/2  cup ranch dressing


  • In a large bowl, stir together grated zucchini, egg, instant mashed potatoes, salt and pepper. Mix until a soft dough forms.
  • Heat coconut oil and olive oil over medium heat in a small pot or deep-sided skillet. Using a mini cookie scoop, drop zucchini mixture into the hot coconut oil, frying until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip with metal tongs, if needed, to ensure even cooking.
  • Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate. Serve warm with ranch dressing for dipping.

Starting a new workout program! Join Me!


Me, after my sweaty home workout.

I am starting this weight loss journey overweight, low self confidence, and low self-esteem. I am slowly learning to kick my negative self talk, and self-defeating attitude to the curb.

I am slowly gaining discipline, consistency and accountability for my choices, Which is huge!

I can’t tell you how many times I have started a new habit only to quit doing it a few weeks into the process! I start a new workout or start going to the gym and I’m going strong for a few weeks, and then life gets in the way. I get sick, or I’m too busy and exhausted, or I fall back into my old routines of junk food eating, desserts, and fast food. Because it’s easy, familiar and maybe a little comforting (like a down comforter on a cold day, or that biscuits and gravy that doesn’t love me back).

I am so determined to get my health back. I want to be the person who does not have to sit back, watch others have fun because I am too exhausted to participate.

As a mom on the go most of the day, I don’t have a lot of time or money to dedicate to going to the gym. I barely have time for sleep on a good day.

Get your health and your sanity back, by taking time to take care of yourself. How are you supposed to care for your family, your kids or your fur babies, if you don’t take care of yourself?

Follow me as I struggle, yet push on in my weight loss journey. I will NOT give up this time. This time WILL be different.

No one said it was going to be easy, but I hope to motivate and inspire others to join me through my struggles and triumphs….If I can do this, so can you!

Join me in a private accountability group that starts on March 21. It will include a 30 minute workout of your choice which you can do in the comfort of your own home, and a healthy nutritious super food meal replacement shake. Plus you will get me as your free coach to encourage and support you in your own weight loss journey.
