Zucchini Sausage Egg Muffins Recipe (Gluten-Free & Low Carb)

How to make low carb gluten-free breakfast muffins with eggs, sausage, and zucchini - This quick, simple, and easy recipe has a ton of keto protein and is great for breakfast, brunch, lunches, or snacks.

One of the things I have consistently eaten since my bariatric surgery in April 2017 is egg muffins. At first, after my surgery, I could only eat one egg muffin and that was it. Now, I usually eat two or three along with some veggies, and it’s a perfect high protein meal for breakfast, lunch, or even a snack. The thing I love most about egg muffins is that they’re quick and easy – both to make and to eat. They make a great on-the-go meal for rushed mornings or packed lunches. This recipe comes from Irena Macri of Instant Pot … Read more

Zucchini Quiche (Gluten-Free)

We are at the point in our gardening and CSA seasons where we are swimming in zucchini. We are getting a half dozen zucchini in our farm box each week, and our own zucchini plants are producing baseball bat-sized fruits almost daily. It’s a good thing that we love zucchini in all its incarnations. Well, two of the four of us do anyway. Allie declared that she hates it just yesterday, and Grace won’t eat anything green. (Where did I get these kids from?!) My all-time favorite way to eat zucchini is stuffed with cream cheese, but I also really … Read more

Grilled Zucchini

  Joe and I bought our gas grill the day we created our wedding registry at Sears. We knew we should wait for my bridal shower, but we just couldn’t be patient. We wanted to enjoy grilled food out on our deck as soon as the weather warmed up. We primarily grill hamburgers, chili burgers, hot dogs, chicken breasts, and veggies. Oh, and kielbasa. I can’t forget kielbasa; Joe’s dad has worked at a world famous kielbasa shop on and off throughout his retirement. My mom grills all kinds of adventurous things – pineapple, peaches, corn, and stuff I’d never … Read more

Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Zucchini

The last time we went to the beach, we came home to a dead garden. It had been quite hot during the week we were gone, and the plants simply baked. We wanted to keep our fledgling garden alive when we went to the beach this year, especially in light of the dozens of tomato and squash blossoms emerging in the days before we left.  It wasn’t an easy task, but Joe installed a sprinkler and a timer set for 6:30 am every day. It wasn’t easy because the water hook-up on the outside of the house leaks, and Joe … Read more

Quick and Easy Salsa Chicken Pasta

Quick and easy salsa chicken pasta

I feel like a broken record when I saw that I prefer to make food from fresh, whole ingredients that I’ve prepared myself, but that sometimes, that just doesn’t work out. For the times that we get home late or spent too much time playing outside, we need quick and easy options that come together quickly. We had the opportunity to try out Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips this week, and they fit the bill perfectly. Tyson Grilled Chicken Breast & Strips are fully cooked, 98% fat-free whole breast fillets without preservatives or breading. They’re a quick and … Read more
