Bikini Zuchinni

Hey there loves!

Its friday eve :)

I hope you all had a teriffic thursday!

Ok apparently I went to bed too late last night and I overslept till 7:55 AM even with my alarm going off every seven minutes after 6:30.  NO BUENO.


My sweet hubs made sure I had oatmeal packed, snacks and coffee ready to go!

120 cals
For lunch I used a $5.00 coupon that McAlisters deli had sent me for my birthday and for only $2.36 I got a pick 2 and chose the grilled chicken spud (add olives and red onions) and the veggie chilli.
620 cals
I also had like 2 pks of crackers.
For a snack I had an apple and dark chocolate pb
60 cals apple
85 cal pb
Then I made these beauties!
Bikini Zuchinni's
My hubs says "But how do these get you in a bikini"
Oh dear...
Ladies I am sure you understand, lol.
This is a MUCH better and more low carb option than traditional pizza or italian food!
What you need:
4 medium zuchinni
2 tbsp chopped onion
small can of mushroom pieces and stems, drained
one small can of tomato sauce
2 tbsp of spaghetti sauce (or pizza sauce)
16 slices of turkey pepperonni
Pizza or Italian seasoning to taste
Mexican or Mozzarella blend shreadded cheese
Preheat oven to 400 deg.
1. Wash zuchinni and slice them in half, use a spoon to scoop out the insides.
2. Get a bowl and add in turkey pepperoni (chopped), onion, sauces, and chop up the mushroom (after draining liquid from can) and add to the bowl. Also add in your seasonings.
3. Line a rectangle dish with the zuchinni and sprinkle salt over them.
4.  Next add in your fillings to the bellys of the zuchinnis that you hollwed out.
5.  Top with cheese.  I used maybe a cup total. 
*Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
They were sooo freakin good yall!!
In MFP they came out to like 92 cals a piece! 
Just make yours how you like but just figure at least 100 cals unless you really skimp on the cheese.
Dinner was spaghetti
374 cals
I also had that piece of garlic bread with it-100 cals
Parm cheese -20 cals
And for desert...
130 cals
I cleaned the kitchen which was a mess and now I am sitting down trying to relax. 
I hope you all try the recipe!! :)


  1. We had spaghetti too! How do you like the Skinny cow peanut butter chocolates? We have the caramel kind & love them but I haven't bought the pb yet.

    1. Yay for sketti night!! I love the peanut butter ones!! SOOO tasty go try them girl!!

  2. This may be a stupid question so dont judge, but when you scoop out the middle of the zucchini do you use it in the mixture or just throw it out?

    1. My guess is throw it out. I know with other squash recipes it says to discard the scooped out part (usually seeded parts anyway). Hopefully Lauryn will reply so we will know for sure. :)

    2. Actually some recipes call for the zuchinni bits to go inside the mix, but I prefer them out LOL. Just personal preference I guess but I find them watery and that just wasnt what I was going for LOL. Do try them though they are good!!! :)

    3. Totally not a stupid question! Some reipes call for you to use it, but I decided not too...its kinda mushy so I threw mine out! :)

  3. Yanno, I saw those zucchini boats last year.. maybe on Skinnytaste... and forgot to ever make them. Wait, I got a recipe for them at Publix, that's it. Anyway, they looked and sounded awesome to me then, and they still do now! Thanks for the reminder! You know how I love my spaghetti squash, so I'm sure I'd love this!

    1. Yes girl you should totally try it you would love it! I love the turkey pepperonnis too because they are great protein for a snack you can have 16 for 70 cals!!

    2. I love turkey pepperoni, too. They are very yummy. I already use those when I make stuff like this, so that's definitely what I would do, too. :) It's like 8 or 9 whole slices for only 1 points+ on WW!

  4. Looks yummy! I love the zuchinni and will def have to try those! :)

    1. Yay let me know if you do and like them! :)

  5. Men just don't get it sometimes....bless their little hearts. Great recipe too. Have a great weekend!

    1. haha i know right! thanks sheila you too hun!!!!
