What’s so good about zucchini?

Zucchini is an excellent meal component thanks to its versatility
A member of the Cucurbitaceae family (making it a fruit), Zucchini is closely related to watermelons, squash, and pumpkins. Zucchini can be roasted, fried, baked and even spiralised to replace spaghetti for those wanting to partake in a low-carb diet. In addition to its versatility, zucchini also has a wide range of health benefits, including being rich in vitamin A, C, calcium and zinc and an antioxidant (meaning it protects your body and helps prevent certain health issues). In addition to this, zucchini may also aid digestion, slow down ageing and support a healthy heart.

Fun fact! The longest zucchini on record measured in at a whopping 2.52m, making it much taller than the average human!
