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 Low-calorie, Lactose-free Alternative

I admit that I always bought my almond milk in the past until I decided to make my own. Yes, it is certainly more time consuming than just going to pick up at the store, but the taste is absolutely awesome! Try making it in your very own kitchen and be creative with your add-ins (see some of my variation options below the recipe). Enjoy!

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.
