Zucchini Pancakes for Dieting
Ever since I've started using the My Fitness Pal program and wrote a hub about it, I've been planning to give some of my favorite dieting recipes. I really think that one of the major keys to successful weight loss, and especially successful maintenance is finding foods you really enjoy eating that are healthy, filling and enjoyable.This is one of mine: zucchini pancakes. Everyone has their own combination of tastes that they like, so I think that a person has to come up with their own favorites, but I'm offering some of my own in hopes that it might help someone else.
Fresh Garden Zucchini Recipe
In the summertime, lots of us with gardens are looking for ways to use that wonderfully prolific vegetable: zucchini. I can't remember if I made up this recipe originally myself, or if someone had made it for me, but I do know that I first started making it when I lived in Stockton, California where the summer vegetables are always very prolific. These are now one of my favorite go-to diet foods and I'm eating them a lot now that I'm using My Fitness Pal for dieting. Made as in the recipe above, they are about 50 calories each, but you can make that calorie count lower if you use egg substitute, add an extra grated zucchini and use fat-free cheese.
Zucchini Pancakes for Company
Yet, they are not just a diet dish. I love these pancakes as a quick snack or even for company. They are a great way to add vegetables to your meal and even though they are so quick and easy to make, they seem like company food. You can keep the cooked ones in the refrigerator for several days, but they usually don't last that long!
