Zucchini and Tuna

Hey all!

I know it has been awhile. I really have no excuse as to why I have been absent. I just have not felt like writing. I guess you can call it laziness. However, today I did feel like sharing :)

Lately, I have been going to the gym as usual. I have gotten stronger and leaner, but still working on shedding this stubborn belly fat. I also picked up a new hobby which I will share with you later. I took a break with the potty training because miss Faith was not interested anymore, but she is ready to start again. I am still trying new recipes like the one I will share today.

A week ago I bought some zucchinis and just planned on sauteing them with onions like I usually do. However, I really wanted to try something new so I turned to my favorite recipe inspiration place, Pinterest. While browsing through zucchini recipes I saw a recipe of tuna and zucchinis and decided to go with that. I briefly looked at the recipe, but did my own version as I usually do. This is a great alternative to a tuna sandwich for anyone looking to go low carb or add more veggies into your diet.

2T Hummus
