Make Ahead Salsa Zucchini Boats

Jun 12, 2020 | Side Dish, Snack

Do make-ahead snacks float your boat? 

 

These zucchini boats are super quick to prepare and a fun make ahead option for meals and snacks! Having ready to go snacks prepared ahead of time will not only make life easier but it will ensure you actually eat them! 

 

The easier you make things on yourself, the more likely it will be that you reach your weight loss goals. Have a plan, stick to your plan, lose weight! 

 

Soooooo…that brings me to these zucchini boats. I enjoyed these as a snack, but you can totally make this your side dish as well! I hope you love them as much as I do!
