Mike and I are working on a healthier eating plan. For the first time in our 30 year marriage, we both want to lose a few pounds before the holidays.

In the earlier years of our marriage, Mike was the slimmer of the two of us, but as those 30 years rolled by, we’ve both put on an extra few pounds around the middle. As crazy as this may sound, it’s been fun to work on losing weight together.

That’s not to say that we haven’t been craving our favorite foods. My husband adores breakfast of any kind, so stuffing zucchini boats with his favorite scrambled eggs were a hit to say the least!

1 large serving

Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons onion, minced
  • ½ cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, Laughing Cow Herb Cheese, or low fat cheese of choice
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Trim ends of zucchini, then cut in half lengthwise, then in each section in half. Scoop out the middle to create for "boats."
  3. Place on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with pepper. Bake for 20 minutes until just tender.
  4. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, then add vegetable broth, onions and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes until tender. Add water as needed to keep from burning.

  6. Fill zucchini boats with eggs and serve.

      I was thinking that stuffing tomatoes would be good too. Maybe add a little bacon. It wouldn’t add a whole lot of calories, but then it would truly be a husband pleasing meal. Have a good weekend! :)

    Have a good weekend!

    I tend to prefer breakfast for dinner, so this is perfect! Scrambled eggs are so good and pretty low cal, and zucchini is one of my favs. Great combo, and really nice looking. Thanks.

    What a great idea to put the eggs in zucchini boats! And, you can never go wrong with mushrooms in scrambled eggs (or mushrooms in anything IMO!)

      So true! Friday’s recipe is roasted portabella mushrooms with fried eggs. It seems to be a theme for us calorie watching folks. Very satisfying.
