Low Carb Lasagna Meal Prep
This lasagna is one of our favorite low carb meal prep recipes yet! We substituted fresh zucchini ribbons for traditional wheat pasta, which also makes this low carb meal prep naturally gluten-free. Between layers of delicious zucchini noodles (“zoodles”) we packed a rich, lean meat sauce and three types of cheese: ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella. Are you drooling? We’re drooling. This healthy lasagna recipe is great for those on the Keto diet, or anyone looking to add more nutrients and fewer refined carbs to their meals.
We love building low carb meal prep recipes around zucchini. It’s the perfect pasta substitute, is available all year round, is super healthy, and is pretty easy to prepare, no matter how you’re enjoying it. Zucchini is a great source of vision-supporting Vitamin A, immune-supporting Vitamin C, Potassium, and a nutrient that a lot of us need more of: fiber. We’re loving the zucchini noodles in this low carb lasagna meal prep, but check out a few of our other favorite zoodle meal prep recipes like Zoodles with Tomato Oregano Sauce and 10 Minute Pad Thai Zoodles.
It’s easy to forget that things in a can, can be good for us. But good quality tomatoes are actually very rich in nutrients! Piggybacking on the great amount of vision-supporting Vitamin A found in zucchini noodles, tomatoes contain the antioxidants lutein and lycopene, which support the eyes by protecting the macular system against damage from free radicals. This low carb meal prep is giving a whole new meaning to eating with your eyes 🤓 Tangy tomatoes are the perfect complement to the richness of the three added types of cheese, savory garlic and onion, and protein-rich lean beef.
This Low Carb Lasagna Meal Prep is delicious and satisfying, and pretty light on calories as lasagna goes (only 474 per serving)! It’s also totally Insta-worthy. #cheesepull
