  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella 
  • 20 (more or less) pepperonis

Low Carb Eggplant Pizza 🍆🍕

  
I’ve recently started eating Low Carb/Keto lifestyle and I am loving it but there are days when I miss PIZZA 🍕🍕. It’s one of my favorite foods, so I decided to give this a go and see how it turned out to my surprise it was super good and my kids loved it! 

Ingredients:

Makes 6 personal pizzas

  • 1 eggplant
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Low carb pizza sauce (or make your own)
  • Pepperonis
  • Optional veggies 

Directions:

Cut eggplant into thick slices, sprinkle with sea salt and lay on top of paper towels for about 20-25 mins. This gets the excess water out so they won’t be super soggy and gross. Preheat oven to 400, and bake 15-20 mins. Remove and add sauce, cheese and toppings, broil for 2-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. 

Carb Count 5.5 carbs per pizza 

  • Eggplant: 4.5
  • Pizza Sauce (I did about 2 tbsp): 1
  • Mozzarella: 0
  • Pepperoni: 0

Chicken Ceasar Wraps

  
So I’m all about quick, easy and healthy with a 6 year old and 6 month old baby life can be hectic and meal planning isn’t always the easiest task to accomplish. These wraps couldn’t be easier and they’re pretty darn tasty! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Flat Out Wraps
  • 1 bag of Ceasar salad complete kit
  • 2 bags of precooked grilled chicken 

Mix all ingredients into bowl and coat well (I omitted the croutons to cut down on calories). 

  

Portion into flat outs and wrap. I wrapped mine in aluminum foil so it would hold together better in my husband’s lunch box. 

  (Ok so this is not the best picture but I was limited on time lol.)

  Makes 6 large wraps.
