Like my other baked egg cups, these are similar but use zucchini instead of bacon to “wrap” the cup and is more of an omelet consistency on the inside vs a whole egg. these zucchini egg cups are a family favorite and we often will experiment with different toppings – try your favorites and let me know in the comments what combinations you came up with! We like this ham and cherry tomato combination – it’s almost like a mini-quiche.

There are PERFECT for meal prep. I will typically make 12 at the beginning of the week and my sons and I will all grab them each day before heading out for work and school.

Benefits of Zucchini Egg Cups

Zucchini is excellent for a keto diet thanks to low carbs and high fiber – and thanks to the texture, it’s a great substitute for noodles. Zucchini is loaded in carotenoids which protects our skin from harmful toxins while also keeping it hydrated and youthful — which is why we specifically recommend it on a Ketology lifestyle.

Zucchini also has plenty of heart healthy benefits as helping with bone health, assisting to maintain body weight and high in fiber.

Of course, eggs are a keto superfood thanks to a near perfect ratio of fat and protein on a keto diet.

Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects!
