Low Carb Stuffed Peppers or Zucchini


 Seems like whenever you cut out an ingredient, the taste is compromised but luckily these will please all the low carb lovers out there! 

I really do love them stuffed with any kind of vegetable.
Our family recently started really getting serious about eating low carb.

My son was diagnosed with diabetes, now I am cooking a whole lot different. Feeling healthy and keeping his numbers well in control with this low carb diet. The main focus is to recreate healthy meals that doesn't impede flavor so you don't miss the old way. 

We want to live a healthy life style and keep everyone eating delicious healthy meals as always. It takes a lot of determination and motivation to change the way you eat after several years of eating a different way.
So I am starting off with this awesome stuffed pepper dish. It was truly delicious and we didn't miss any of the carbs that make it non diabetic friendly.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Scones

I am doing my best to cook healthier low carb foods now, especially since my youngest son was diagnosed with diabetes. 

Whole Wheat Blueberry Scones

I have been adapting older recipes and using whole wheat flour and less sugar. These whole wheat blueberry scones came out great unless you are a sugar fanatic but scones aren't sweet to begin with. These are tender and great with morning coffee or a cup a tea. I think as an afternoon snack they would awesome.

Ham and Egg Cups Video

If you want a quick easy breakfast, 
without the bread you've found it! 

Ham and Egg Cups

Ham and egg cups are amazing! Of course you can make toast if you like but if you're cutting carbs.

Just omit the bread, that's the beauty of using ham on the bottom and filling it with eggs.

 I enjoy breakfast especially when it's easy, tasty and all in one bite is a bonus. 

You can add bits of potato, onion and chopped peppers on top of the ham before it bakes too! I like to add a dab of butter on top of the eggs for more flavor too, but if you watching calories omit that part!
