Meatless Monday: Garlic Roasted Summer Squash… and the Contest Winner!

A winner has been selected for the SlimKicker giveaway contest! Drum roll please………………….

CONGRATULATIONS to leslieghee! Your suggestion has been selected by the SlimKicker team and will be featured as a new challenge on the SlimKicker app:

“Alternate days of cardio and strength training for a couple of weeks. One day do 30 minutes of running, and the next day do an arms/chest workout, etc. It’s important to do both types of exercises, not just one or the other.”

Very true! Strength training is especially important for weight loss. The more lean muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn while at rest! Leslieghee, please email me at lmfujita (at) to receive details on how to claim your prize!

Now, on to this week’s Meatless Monday recipe. Mama Earth sent us some summer squash last week – they looked so cute! My mom roasted them with a bit of garlic and olive oil. So simple, yet so delicious. I gobbled it right up :)

Garlic Roasted Summer Squash


2-3 summer squashes (they were small)

1 1/2 tbsp olive oil

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

Pepper, to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Trim the ends from the squash and cut into bite-sized pieces. Toss the squash with olive oil, garlic and pepper in a bowl. Place in a shallow baking dish.

2. Roast the squash for about 5-10 minutes, or until tender and slightly browned. Enjoy!

In other news, my boyfriend and I recently found an apartment together and I went to pick up the keys today! We will gradually be moving things in over the next week. I apologize in advance as I likely will not have much time to blog, but hopefully things will get settled rather quickly and I can get back in the swing of things!

Be Well xo
