Meatball Parm Stuffed Zucchini

Meatball Parm Stuffed Zucchini

Low carb and only 200 calories!

Zucchini is such a versatile vegetable. With its mild flavor and subtle texture, it can be used in a variety of dishes. With that being said, I used it in today’s recipe for the base of my Meatball Parm Stuffed Zucchini, as it allows for the full flavor of the meat to come through and provides a low-carb alternative to the standard bread roll or pasta that typically accompanies this dish.

A savory side dish or sweet snack

One of the best ways to keep your diet exciting without getting off track is to have fun with veggies. High in fiber and low in calories, vegetables are the ultimate clean-eating companions.

Flourless Fajita Stuffed Pepper

Flourless Fajita Stuffed Pepper

Light version of the classic fajita

If you have ever eaten at a Mexican restaurant, you know that there is just something about that sizzling plate of fajitas that gets you hooked each and every time. Inherently, the meat, peppers and onions that this dish is traditionally comprised of are all healthy; however, the excess oil, tortillas and all of the fix-ins can really start to rack up the calories.
