UFIT Recipes: Zucchini and Carrot Slice

Previously, UFIT Nutritionist Michelle McKenna showed us how you can whip up delicious muffins using healthy ingredients, this time round she will be showing you another recipe - Zucchini and Carrot Slice. A typical Australian recipe, the Zucchini slice is frequently enjoyed as a snack or a light meal. On top of it all, it is easy to prepare, which is something we can all be thankful for in today's busy schedules.
