Party Bites. Low Carb and Easy: Cheese Lovers Zucchini Puffs
The holidays can wreck a diet. But why sacrafice taste and feel deprived at the many holiday gatherings you may attend? In our most perfect world, we would be able to mingle, have a great time, and stay AWAY from the food table. I know my willpower is not that grand. Offer to bring a few hors d'overs and be assured you will have something yummy to snack on.
Here is one to get you started:
Cheese Lovers Zucchini Puffs
2 medium zucchini
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon basil or favorite herb
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Preheat broiler to 500 degrees.
Slice zucchini into about 18 rounds
In a large bowl, mix cheese, mayo, basil, and pepper (I add a little garlic)
Spread about a tablespoon of the cheese mixture on each of the zucchini rounds
place on a greased (just a light spray of pam to keep this light) baking pan.
broil for about 60 seconds, or until cheese starts to bubble and melt.
Serving size is 2 rounds

I know, as a recent Bride myself, that it is hard to stick to a diet plan with all of the celebrations. Add the holidays to the mix and you might as well just throw in the towel, right? NO!!! Be creative, keep your hands busy, mingle AWAY from the food....but if temptation gets the better of you, find something that will not bust out the stays in your corsetted wedding dress. Those are expensive to repair!!!
