TIS’ ZUCCHINI SEASON: ZOODLES, ZOATS AND ZUCCHINI MUFFINS

by Coach Courtney, RD www.vitalitynutrition.ca

 

Zucchini season is in full swing and the amount of zucchini I have recently been given is overwhelming. I don’t know about you, but I loooovve zucchini, and always have fun trying new recipes with it! Zucchini is a very versatile vegetable with many beneficial properties. Not only does it boast being a low-calorie food at approximately 4 grams of carbohydrates per cup, but Its high in vitamin C and A possessing antioxidant properties. Zucchini is also abundant in potassium and folate making it a great veggie for your heart as it aids in lowering and controlling your blood pressure. As zucchini is mostly made up of water, it’s a vegetable that is very easily digested and gentle on your digestive tract with its high amount of dietary fiber!

Not sure what to do with all the zucchini sitting on your kitchen counter? Besides being great grilled or sautéed, zucchini is known as a “volume food” and can be used in many recipes to sneak those extra veggies in, add “volume” to your meal, or be used to replace (or mix with) your favourite pasta recipes to cut back on your carbohydrate intake.
