Why is everyone trying Low Carb and Keto?
Lowering your carbs to below 100 grams per day is beneficial for weightloss and also promotes overall good health, energy and vitality. The Keto Diet limits your intake of carbs to less than 50 grams per day and eliminates junk and processed foods allowing you to eat clean, whole food for better overall health and wellness.
I follow the Weight Watchers program and incorporate low carb, so it is a blend of both. Don't be afraid to experiment with different types of food that is the only way you are going to discover your best healthy life.

What Kitchen Tools do I need?
- 4 Medium Zucchinis
- 1 Small Onion
- A Pinch of Salt & Pepper
- ½ Teaspoon of Garlic
- ¾ Cup of Marinara Sauce - I like Rao's Marinara Sauce
- 1 Cup of Part Skim Ricotta
- 1 ¼ Cups Fat Free Mozzarella Cheese
- ¼ Cup of Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1 Teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
- 6 grape tomatoes sliced
- 4 Mushrooms sliced
- Fresh Chopped Basil
1: Preheat oven to 450 Degrees F. If you have an Air Fryer you can cook your Zucchini Pizzas in the Air Fryer Basket for 15 minutes at 360 Degrees.
2: Cut each Zucchini in half lengthwise.
3: Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh from the Zucchini. Place the Zucchini Shells on a large baking sheet pan. * Note - to make it easy to scoop out the inside of the Zucchini I used a small knife to cut a crisscross pattern and then used a spoon to scoop. Making the cuts in the Zucchini flesh makes it easy to scoop.
4: Take the Zucchini Flesh you scooped out and place in a bowl and set aside.
5: Chop your Onion into small chunks and place in your Mini Kitchen Chopper with the Garlic and Zucchini Flesh and Pulse until you get a smooth blend. If you do not own a Kitchen Chopper you can dice everything as fine as possible.
6: Transfer the Zucchini mixture pureee to a bowl and add in the Ricotta Cheese, ¾ Cup of the Mozzarella, Parmesan Cheese and Italian Seasoning. Stir well, and season with Salt and Pepper.
7: Divide the mixture and stuff the Zucchini Shells. Spread Marinara Sauce on top of the stuffed Zucchini Boat then Sprinkle with the remaining ½ Cup of Mozzarella. Top with sliced tomatoes and mushrooms or whatever you like. Bake until golden brown 20-30 minutes.
8: Garnish with Parmesan and chopped Basil before serving.
