As I approach 50, I am reflecting even more on my nutrition and lifestyle. When many of us reach this age, the desire to lose weight and take charge of our health becomes a much bigger priority.

In Texas, we enjoy fresh zucchini year-round. So I'm all about finding new ways to prepare this green, cucumber-lookalike.
Here's one of our latest favorites. It's super simple because you need only seven ingredients. Actually, make that five - zucchini, tomato, Parmesan cheese, chives and olive oil - because the other two are salt and pepper. And they shouldn't even count!
Great for weeknights when you're short on time (like always!), this yummy, stovetop side or vegetarian main dish comes together in under half an hour.
