Grill up asparagus, peppers, zucchini, summer squash, or any of veggies above. Marinade your healthy delights in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. For an extra zip, add cayenne pepper.
Go Italian with a low carb pasta topped with your choice of garlic, herbs, and tomatoes. Add a light sprinkle of Romano or Parmesan cheese for perfect touch.
