Working mom meal: Philly-stuffed mushroom caps

low carb recipes

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- I’ve been on a healthy eating lifestyle change since January so I’ve had to get creative with my cooking and finding new ways to add more veggies into my diet.  My husband told me if he had to eat another stuffed pepper for dinner he may kill me so I decided to put a twist on one of my favorite low-carb recipes.  As a busy working mom I’m always looking for recipes that I can prep for the week ahead and just bake when I walk in the door.

Though my kids don’t like this recipe it’s one of my favorites.   To keep up with my own healthy eating goals I find I often make myself a different meal than my family.   That may sound time consuming but when you are trying hard to stick to your goal you gotta do what you gotta do!  I have found that meal prepping is the key to my success in living a healthy lifestyle so I wanted to share with you this simple low carb dinner idea.
