Zucchini Ribbons with Homemade Pesto

I’ve been back on a keto diet since yesterday because I’ll be honest, losing weight post-pregnancy has been near impossible. I’ve been eating as healthy as ever and the scale just won’t budge. I do have PCOS which can make it incredibly hard (and frustrating) to lose weight. The keto diet is the most commonly recommended diet for women with PCOS and it has worked incredibly well for me in the past so I figured why not try it again!

A keto diet is basically really low carb to put your body in a state of ketosis, where you burn fat for fuel! And let me tell you, the food does NOT suck! Do you like cheese? How about bacon? (seriously bae-con)

Today for lunch, I made zucchini ribbons with a homemade pesto and OMG it was BOMB!!! 

To make the pesto I just put basil, chopped garlic, olive oil, walnuts, and some parmesan in a food processor! I honestly eyeballed the whole thing! It’s really what YOU want! 

I am visiting my parents so I don’t have my spiralizer. Instead, I used a potato peeler and made the zucchini into ribbons (first throwing out the skin). Make sure to stop once you hit the seeds! 

I sauteed the ribbons in a pan with some EVOO and garlic. I finally tossed it in the pesto, topped with some more parmesan (duh) and VOILA!

Seriously so easy yet so so good!! I ended up topping it with shrimp for protein! Ever since I was pregnant, I have a shrimp addiction…it’s weird!

Anyway, you HAVE to try this!! 

I talk a lot about my new keto diet in my Facebook group “PCOS Babes.” It’s 100% free! If you have PCOS too, you should absolutely join! Click here to request to be added!
