Is Zucchini Okay on Keto?

Zucchini is low carb and very nutrient dense.  It can be used in so many ways, peeled, shredded, spiralized, and more.  Zucchini makes a fantastic substitute for breads or noodles and adds a delicious flavor that bread and pasta can’t offer.  I love cooking with zucchini, and knowing zucchini is okay on Keto means I can eat it without worry.

Bonus Cooking Tip: What is Passata?

The only other thing is a word about passata. Passata is basically strained uncooked tomatoes and gives a fresher tomato taste to your dish.

It is usually found in a glass jar or in a tetra pack. There was a time you had to go to an Italian specialty market but now Passata is available on Amazon and most grocery stores.

If you cannot find passata, the best substitute is to stir some canned tomatoes through a strainer.
