The hardest thing about cutting out carbs is that for most of us, carbs form the “foundation” of a meal. In other words, the filling part. In a hamburger, the carbs are in the bun. In a pizza, they’re in the crust. In a taco, they’re the tortilla. On a low-carb diet, you have to get creative to re-imagine meals without carbs.
But more often than not, it’s a lot easier than you thought it would be. These savory, zucchini fritters are the perfect example. Not only do they have an approximate total of 3 grams of carbs, they’re a flexible foundation for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Pair them with a ground beef patty to make a burger or use them as your base for pizza or tacos. They take about fifteen minutes to fry up.
