Fruit and Veggie Bread
Packed with zucchini, apples, and carrots, this Fruit and Veggie Bread bakes up quickly and is perfect for the end of summer.
Today I am excited to be guest blogging over at Diethood! DIETHOOD! I just love Kate’s blog and I know you will too. Don’t let the name of her blog fool you. Kate isn’t afraid of a little sugar and butter. However I thought I would be a good girl and bring her readers my favorite summer quick bread.
This bread is every bit as tasty as it is gorgeous. I just know your family will love it. A few years ago in my kitchen this bread started out entitled “Zucchini Bread.” Many mark-ups and years later it reads “Fruit and Veggie Bread.” So come and join me over at Diethood!

Just checked out the recipe and it looks great! I have bookmarked it and will try it with all the huge zucchinis my garden is producing these days! My kids love this kind of bread toasted and then topped with cream cheese. Great breakfast for school mornings!
Now all I need is someone who has a prolific zucchini patch!
Am I awful when I look at the first photo and think, "oh man, I would love to put some butter or jam on those slices of bread!" LOL. Completely defeats the purpose of healthy bread, hahaha. The bread and loaves look amazing though and I think fruit and veggie breads are genius. Just the other day I had some cranberry pumpkin seed baguette and it was delightful all on its own.
