Today’s recipe is a 2 portion low carb zucchini frittata with only 7g of carbs per portion!

If you want more or less, it scales up and down accordingly. If you want to make a vegetarian variation, simply swap the Parmesan cheese and whipped cream for vegetarian/vegan versions!

Zucchinis are the perfect low-carb vegetables, as they are mainly water-based, yet contain important minerals such as potassium and magnesium. The eggs used score points for their high protein and vitamin A content. They also have a high saturation index.
