This simple twist on the Parmesan crisp introduces added texture and a mild sweetness while offering additional fiber too. Of course, the added colors of the vegetables make this crisp a beauty for the eyes to feast on before you taste it. Enjoy these as is or with fat-bomb dips and spreads.

Zucchini: A Kitchen Staple

It’s no secret that the right vegetables are an important part of any healthy diet. Zucchini is a fantastic choice for high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets because it has a low carbohydrate content (low glycemic index), and it’s full of potassium, a crucial mineral for heart health. Besides that, it also makes a fantastic substitute for pasta lovers looking for low-carbohydrate alternatives.
