37. Keto Zucchini Pizza Crust

This Pizza Crust, crafted from Zucchini, is devoid of grains, gluten, and is compatible with a ketogenic dietary plan. It’s a tasty, health-enhancing choice low in carbohydrates, appreciated by all.

The thought of utilizing zucchini for crafting a pizza crust originated when my mother arrived at my abode carrying a surplus of zucchini from our backyard’s harvest.

I love the idea of making a nutrient-packed crust that doesn’t even warrant eggs or white flour and packs flavor. The texture packs more nutrients. 

This low carb zucchini crust pizza is crispy and delicious. The crust is loaded with zucchini, but it doesn’t really taste of it. It’s quick, easy, has minimal ingredients, packs flavor, nutrients, holds together, you can mix up the toppings as you like.

36. Peach Homemade Greek Yogurt Recipe

Sweetened fruit-infused yogurt is an enjoyable and practical treat, yet the store-bought containers, irrespective of their natural or artificial flavoring, tend to carry excessive sugar levels, reaching up to 40 grams per portion. Frequently, the fruit contents are steeped in high-fructose corn syrup and other sugar substitutes, which undermine the yogurt’s health advantages such as gut-friendly live cultures and protein. This recipe crafted from scratch reduces the sugar content significantly, letting the natural sweetness of peaches elevate the taste.

35. Green Goddess Hummus

Behold, the freshest, most verdant homemade hummus I’ve ever encountered. My benchmark for impressive hummus has been elevated over time, reaching its pinnacle during my visit to Israel last autumn, quite naturally. This hummus is indeed a game changer.

I incorporated fresh herbs inspired by the traditional verdant goddess dressing, blending them into the hummus, resulting in an incredibly green and flavor-packed creation.

I had my doubts about my verdant goddess concept while adding pricey fresh tarragon and chives to my grocery basket, but the end result justified the expense. That being said, feel free to wait on trying this hummus until your herb garden flourishes, or modify the herbs to save on expenses.

My affection for this hummus is so deep that it was one of the few blog recipes that earned a place in my cookbook!

34. Healthier Peanut Butter Slices

Always have these savory peanut butter slices ready to keep snack cravings at bay.

33. Low-Calorie Italian Casserole

The problem with many calorie-conscious meals is that they often lack substance, leaving you unsatisfied and reaching for snacks within a few hours.

That’s not the case here!

You could even adapt this to suit vegetarians by using tofu or canned beans.

32. Skinny Burrito Bowls

The standout feature of these bowls is the flexibility to replace your rice with quinoa or cauliflower rice effortlessly, while still preserving the burrito’s authentic taste.

I prefer mine with shredded chicken, but ground turkey is an excellent low-calorie alternative.

31. 10-Minute Chickpea and Spinach Curry

This recipe is straightforward, vegan, and packs fewer than 150 calories per portion! What more could you ask for in a wholesome dinner!

Since your chickpeas from the can are already cooked, they require minimal time in the pan.

You’ll simmer everything together to fuse the flavors and thicken the mix, without the half-hour wait to ensure it’s safe to consume.

I confess I added some coconut milk to my curry for a creamier texture, but even without it, the flavors are exceptionally vibrant.

30. Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet

This recipe has served as breakfast, lunch, and dinner for me, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser.

I often pair it with a fried egg for added protein at breakfast, but it’s sufficiently hearty on its own.

Not only is it incredibly filling, but it also works great as a make-ahead meal that can be transformed into a variety of dishes.

We’ve had it with pasta, in tacos, or as part of a taco salad.

29. Shrimp And Asparagus Stir Fry (Under 300 Calories)

What I appreciate most about asparagus is its delightful crunch, even post-cooking.

Furthermore, its flavor is not overpowering, allowing the shrimp to take center stage.

In addition, this dual-ingredient stir fry is super quick to prepare, as neither shrimp nor asparagus requires extensive cooking time.

It’s excellent as is, or you could easily expand it with more veggies or zoodles if you have them handy.

28. Guilt-Free Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Noodles Pasta

Zucchini noodles, or zoodles as we fondly call them, are a fantastic pasta substitute available pre-spiralized at stores!

They’re low in carbs and serve surprisingly well as a pasta alternative.

Their mild flavor pairs well with everything from Alfredo to marinara sauce.

In this recipe, we stick to basics with a quick and easy garlic and parmesan finish.

27. Healthy Taco Salad

One thing is certain: taco-seasoned beef is equally delicious with or without tortillas.

I often cook more than needed on Taco Tuesdays, ensuring my Wednesday lunch is prepped!

Just combine your leftovers with a large bowl of lettuce and savor!

But it doesn’t have to stop at leftovers. If you fancy a change from your regular chicken salad, this is the perfect choice.

26. Healthy Tortilla Pizza

If you’re a fan of thick, fluffy pizza crust, this might not be your ideal pick.

However, if you appreciate a thin crust loaded with toppings, this could serve as an excellent compromise when pizza cravings hit.

If you haven’t tried brown rice flour tortillas before, it’s about time! They are an excellent low-carb alternative and are delicious.

25. Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Sauce

To maintain carb-less tacos, opt for corn tortillas. What makes tacos scrumptious is the combination of a few fresh ingredients.

These tacos brim with shrimp and are a delight to the palate, necessitating just a small collection of ingredients.

Consider using a bag of broccoli slaw from the supermarket. It’s generally filled with an assortment of finely sliced veggies and brings a vibrant pop of color to your dish.

Besides, it lends a satisfying crunch to the soft, succulent shrimp!

24. Low-Calorie Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

It’s not just the reduced calories, but also the 15-minute preparation time that makes this a winning dish!

Creating your personal teriyaki sauce might seem too ambitious for a quick meal, but it’s surprisingly straightforward.

Merge ingredients like water, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch in a pot and blend until uniform.

All that’s left to do is to slather it on your chicken and allow the pan’s heat to cook and thicken it.

The advantage of making your own is the total control over its contents.

For instance, you can eliminate sugar completely, or replace it with coconut sugar, if you so wish!

Feel free to adjust according to your preference and relish it!

23. Skinny Potato Pancakes

Potatoes are a ubiquitous part of our diets due to their deliciousness, versatility, and affordability.

Forgoing them isn’t an easy feat, which is why this low-calorie potato accompaniment is ideal for anyone seeking to shave off some calories.

The beauty of this recipe lies in the fact that these are not immersed in hot oil for a prolonged period.

As mashed potatoes are used, the pancakes merely need to be pan-seared until they acquire a delightful golden crust.

22. Pepper Steak with Pan-fried Onions, Tomatoes and Spinach

Whenever I cook a steak, a variant of potato is almost always a part of the meal.

That’s often the source of extra calories, so substituting them with extra veggies is an excellent alternative to enjoy your steak without guilt.

Onions, full of flavor and steak’s best companion, coupled with blistering juicy tomatoes, will make you forget about potatoes for a moment!

However, relinquishing potatoes is not an easy task.

Check out the next recipe for an exceptional low-calorie potato side that pairs well with steak, chicken, or even fish.

21. Super Low-Calorie Healthy Creamy Vegetable Soup

It might be hard to believe that this velvety soup is low in calories, but the evidence lies in its constituents.

So, how does one prepare this rich, creamy soup devoid of dollops of butter and cream?

Would it surprise you if I told you it’s entirely vegetable-based? That’s the truth!

To concoct this incredibly creamy soup, you’ll need to cook zucchini, cauliflower, onion, and garlic, along with some vegetable stock until they’re soft.

Then just blend it all until you achieve a silky smooth texture! Ingenious, right?

20. Healthy Jambalaya with Shrimp and Sausage

Jambalaya is a great choice when you’re looking to trim some calories. It’s loaded with veggies, herbs, and spices, and naturally low in carbohydrates.

Since it’s already fairly healthy, you just need to make some minor modifications to ensure it’s less than 300 calories per serving.

The simplest method is to replace the Andouille sausage with a leaner option – I opt for chicken sausages.

To lower the calorie count even more, consider replacing the rice with cauliflower rice!

19. Steak Salad

Even when you’re seeking something lower in calories, there’s no reason not to indulge in tender steak!

This recipe instructs you to cube your steak and pan-sear it in seasonings – salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme.

However, I propose a more straightforward method!

Prepare your steak in your usual manner.

Heat your pan until it’s searing hot, fry the steak for a few minutes on each side, let it rest, then slice and serve in strips.

That way, you avoid overcooking and drying out your meat.

18. Yogurt & Honey Fruit Cups

This delicious fusion of fresh fruit and creamy yogurt kissed with a hint of orange will vanish from your breakfast table in no time.

17. Balsamic Roast Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is an exceptional cut of meat. It’s not only straightforward to prepare but also remarkably lean.

The secret to succulent, perfectly cooked pork is to remove it from the oven once it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.

After resting for 15 minutes, it will be 165°F and ready to be savored.

16. Skinny Baked Tilapia with Lemon & Capers

Tilapia is a wonderful white fish with a mild flavor that complements a variety of condiments, from sweet chili to garlic. Delicious sweet snack for sweet tooth.

But when you’re striving to keep things nutritious, this lemon and caper recipe is a must-try!

At a mere 172 calories per serving, you might suspect it to be bland.

However, the potent flavors of lemon and capers ensure that this dish is far from dull.

15. Healthy Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These lettuce wraps with an Asian twist serve as a fabulous alternative to tacos.

While we all love tacos, it’s hard to ignore the excess calories hidden in the tortillas.

With these wraps, you still get the enjoyable experience of finger-food, but with half the calories!

Using lettuce instead imparts a delightful crunchy texture and keeps the dish light and refreshing.
