Low Carb Zucchini - Cheese Frittata

Frittata is a flat omelette which is quite popular in Italy. You can dish out this Italian omelette with variety of vegetables along with cheese and this dish makes an excellent meal either for brunch or else simply for dinner. Am running second week of blogging marathon with an interesting theme and its called 'New Year Challenge'. Obviously if its new year,either we plan for some resolution or take a resolution. Eventhough i dont have any resolutions, my elder son decided to lose few kilos to keep himself fit. Since he dont want to give up his resolution, he also joined fitness club. As a mom i seriously want to motivate him and started making Low carb - gluten free recipes just to keep ourselves fit and happy. Recent resolution for the whole family is to take some low carb dishes atleast thrice a week, yes this is our new year challenge.

Low Carb Frittata, Cheese Zucchini Frittata

Since this week's theme is New year challenge, i couldnt stop myself posting three interesting low carb -gluten free dishes, and am kick starting this theme with a simple, easy breezy, filling, super quick and highly delicious Zucchini cheese frittata. This frittata takes very less time to get ready, though the cooking time may be bit long when compared to the preparation time. But definitely an incredible dish for people want to lose some weight gradually.Its always better to start a diet with low carb dishes then gradually make it as no carb diet. Dieting doesnt mean straving. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#60.
