If you ever have grown zucchini, you know that it tends to produce A LOT. This year I have only one plant but it’s been giving us many beautiful zucchinis, and then a friend of mine came over with loads of them from her garden. We eat lots of zucchini in pasta sauce, smoothies and stews. Zucchini is a low calorie food and contains important minerals, phytonutrients, vitamin C, A— all which should be eaten a lot to promote health. I think zucchini is very versatile and can be used in so many ways. Here are some of my favorite ways to eat this super nutritional vegetable.
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup chopped zucchini
- 1 large apple, diced
- ½ avocado
- Handful of spinach
- 1 Tbsp. fresh mint, minced
- Blend until smooth and creamy
