Zabaglione with Zucchini and Zest, Anyone?

Well, here we are. Take a breath. We've successfully made it to the last day of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. It's day "Z"!

I've been brainstorming ideas for this post for days. The obvious "Z" to address on a healthy foodie blog is zucchini, but I'm not a huge fan. It's an ok vegetable, but not top on my list of cravings. (Yes, I do sometimes crave vegetables. Peas, I'm thinking about you! Mmmmm....)

Then I thought of "zest", but that was my "Z" topic last year. Check out my past post, "How to Make Zest".

Then a friend suggested talking about zabaglione. Well, heck yes! Who doesn't love a riveting discussion of zabaglione! (I'll wait while you Google that one!)

So, now that you're drooling, I agree that decadent Italian custard dessert has nothing to do with whole foods. You're right. But hey, the only way you can stick to a healthy lifestyle is by rewarding yourself once in awhile. So, go ahead and order the zabaglione next time you go to an Italian bistro. After all, life's too short not to indulge on occasion!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. Zabaglione sounds fabulous. I don't ever remember trying it before, so I'll have to try it next time I get the chance.

    1. I know, right?! It reminds me of tapioca or pudding, both of which I really love! ~Angela

  2. Zuccini, otherwise known as courgette, can be quite delicious served a different way. My husband crumbs it and fries in olive oil so it has a nice crust. Another way is to slice it full length with a potato peeler. The paper-thin texture gives a nice crunch and looks wonderful as a garnish.

  3. Oh that dessert sounds wonderful. Not the peas though, sorry I'm not a big fan...unless I'm out in the garden eating them fresh out of the pod. : )

  4. I think it can be counted a s whole food, if you use quality ingredients right? And what a great vehicle for fruit!

  6. I guess you are not fond of friends who drop by with tons of zucchini's from their over-producing plants. You can send them my way. And yes, I had to Google Zabaglione. I have never heard of it so if I get a chance I will try it. I found your blog late on the A to Z but am following it as we are trying to do a better job of eating healthier foods.
