Is Zucchini Good For You?
Zucchini, sometimes referred to as courgette, is a variety of summer squash. It’s very low calorie and low fat boasting quite a few vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, folate, multiple B vitamins, potassium, zinc, calcium, iron, and even protein.
How To Pick a Good Zucchini
Zucchini can easily be found in grocery stores all year round. Look for those that are average in size and that have smooth, unblemished skins.
What Can I Do With an Overgrown Zucchini?
This green vegetable can be grown in your own backyard garden with very little effort. One plant can produce up to 10 pounds of zucchini in just one season. And the more your harvest, the more zucchini you’re likely to get.
So, just what are you supposed to do with that huge overgrown monstrosity that you somehow missed hiding under the leaves? Well, you probably don’t want to eat it raw, but it will still be great for soups, stews, and all the baked goods you can imagine.
