- 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon of Sriracha
- 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds

- 1 cup of shredded carrot
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 1 lb of ground pork
Put vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then, add garlic and ginger. Cook this combo until it gets fragrant (takes 1-2 minutes). Then, add ground pork and cook until there is no pink texture on the meat.
Now, push the pork meat on one of the sides and add some sesame oil, onion, cabbage, and carrot. Stir fry this combination, and add some soy sauce and Sriracha. You should now cook this combination until the cabbage gets tender (takes 5-8 minutes).
Now, transfer this combo to a plate and adorn it with green onions and sesame seeds.
Up for a low carb taco variant? Why not make tacos out of tomatoes for a creative twist? Tomatoes will add up to the healthy factor while enriching the taste of your favorite taco meal! The total time to make this dish is just 25 minutes!
- 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 chopped medium onion
- 1 ounce of packet taco seasoning
- 3/4 lb of ground beef
- 4 large ripe tomatoes
- 1/4 cup of sour cream
- 1/2 cup of shredded iceberg lettuce
- 1/2 cup of shredded Mexican cheese mix
First of all, put the extra-virgin oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, add onion, and stir it until it softens (takes 5 minutes). Now, add ground beef and taco seasoning to mix things up a little. Start cooking and make sure to break up the meat with a spoon, until it doesn’t have pink texture (takes about 8 minutes). Don’t forget to drain the fat!
Now, flip the tomatoes so that the stem side is facing downwards. Slice them up to create 6 wedges. Be careful not to cut it all the way though! Afterward, spread open the created wedges.
All that is left to do is to divide the taco meat you made among each tomato. Top each tomato with lettuce, cheese, and sour cream for better serving!

Classic lasagna is very tasty, but also very unhealthy for you. The zucchini lattice lasagna is a perfect complement for it, as it is much less carb-heavy than your traditional lasagna dish! It will take 1 hour of your time only to prepare this amazing replacement for the regular lasagna.
- 2 cups of ricotta
- 1 cup of Parmesan that is freshly grated
- 1/2 cup of marinara
- 3 cups of shredded mozzarella
- 2 large eggs
- Kosher salt
- Black pepper
- 3 large zucchinis
In the beginning, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, stir together eggs, Parmesan, and ricotta in a small bowl. Now, season this mixture with some Kosher salt and black pepper.
You should spread a thin marinara layer in a baking dish. Layer it with two layers of zucchini noodles, mozzarella, and the ricotta mixture you made in the previous step.
Make a zucchini lattice for the last layer. Also, make sure to layer the zucchini noodles side by side diagonally in the baking dish. Put the bottom half of other noodles and lay another zucchini across diagonally. Repeat this process until you fill the top layer.
Now, season this mixture with some more Parmesan, as well as with salt and pepper. Start baking until the mixture gets melty and the zucchini is cooked (takes 30 minutes). Before serving, let the dish cool off for 10 minutes.
