Cinnamon Apple Zucchini Medley

White Flowers

There's something about the end of a hot, humid, and steamy summer when the brisk mornings signal the beginnings of a new season with pleasant temperatures that sends me sprinting to my kitchen to add cinnamon and apples to just about every dish. The aroma fills the air better than any candle could impersonate and brings back memories of all the feel good Autumn activities we love to take pleasure in.

 

      I've been thinking up this dish for a few weeks wanting better alternatives for breakfast. I don't know how you all operate in the mornings but around here we push the envelope and try to squeeze every last minute of sleep we can until we rise and the chaos and pandemonium ensues....packing lunches, looking for that lost sock and screams that can be heard miles away while attempting to brush tangled hair. It's mayhem at its finest folks.
 

     Although I made this dish intending it for breakfast it could easily be enjoyed for lunch or dinner too on any beautiful Autumn day (or when you're daydreaming of Fall!). This dish a perfect combination of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants with a plethora of zucchini, celery and what else.... Autumn's poster child: the apple! Topped with cinnamon and cloves and drizzled with warm honey for an Autumn meal you wont forget!
