The third episode of Bitchen in the Kitchen comes out tomorrow, May 16! I battle Jack in the Box to create a healthier and tastier alternative of their seasoned curly fries & Oreo shake in less time. Will my Bikini Zucchini Stix & Funky Munky Shake beat Jack in the Box’s fries & shake? “Like” the Facebook fan page to be notified when the episode is posted. You can also follow our YouTube channel. And, as always, I will post a link to the episode here on wikiKitchen.

Bitchen in the Kitchen’s Nutrition vs. Jack in the Box’s lack of nutrition:
Zucchini vs. Potatoes

  • Low in calories
  • High in vitamin C
  • Not starchy!

Parmesan cheese

  • Has protein that’s easy to digest (even for lactose intolerants)

Chocolately Cat Cookies vs. Oreos

  • Low in fat
  • No hydrogenated oils or trans fats

Almond milk vs. regular milk

  • Same calcium & vitamin content
  • Dairy-free & gluten-free

Bananas

  • Lots of tryptophan (a mood enhancer)

Cinnamon

  • Can boost brain behavior just by its scent!

Bikini Zucchini Stix
Makes 2-3 servings

3 medium zucchini
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup Panko bread crumbs, seasoned with ½ tbsp garlic powder and ½ tbsp oregano
½ cup olive oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Trim, wash, and cut off the ends of the zucchini. Cut into long sticks even in length, about ¼ inch thickness.

In a large plastic bag, add cheese and seasoned breadcrumbs. Shake well.

Place oil in a pie plate. Add zucchini to pie plate to coat with oil.

Place half of the bread crumbs on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Use tongs to place zucchini on top of breadcrumbs on baking sheet, (dripping off excess oil back into the pie plate before placing on bread crumbs).

Sprinkle remaining panko bread crumbs on top to coat the zucchini. Bake until golden brown.

Funky Munky Shake
Makes 2-3 drinks

½ cup TJ’s Low Fat Chocolately Cat Cookies cookies
1 ½ cups Almond milk
2 frozen bananas
½ tsp cinnamon

Blend bananas, milk, and cinnamon. Smash cookies in a plastic bag. Add cookies and mix by hand.
