I am the mother of three beautiful children – two girls, almost 5 and 2 ½, and a 9-month-old baby boy. I have spent the better part of the last 5 ½ years either gaining weight in a pregnancy, or trying to lose weight post-partum.
I have found that, for me, going on a reduced-carbohydrate diet is the easiest way to lose that baby weight.
In light of the fact that a low-carb diet still has the higher caloric intake that you need to produce the right amount of breast milk, it has also been the only real option for me, as a breastfeeding mother.
With that in mind, I have spent a good portion of the last 5-plus years looking for and trying tons of different low-carb meals.
It’s become something of an obsession for me. I’d call myself a foodie, and I love cooking and baking. I have been on a mission to find food that is fun to cook, delicious to eat (delicious enough for my somewhat picky husband to enjoy, too), and low enough in carbs to help me meet my weight loss goals.
I’d like to begin sharing some of my favorite recipes with you now, and I promise, you won’t miss the carbs one bit!
This recipe is one of my favorite go-to meals, especially in the summer, when I always have a ton of zucchini to use.
