What are zucchini's health benefits?

Zucchini has a lot of health benefits: it is rich in manganese, lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamins A and C. These nutrients contribute to healthy vision and may lower the risk of age-related eye conditions. 

When is zucchini season?

Summer is the best time to enjoy a zucchini. The peak of the season hits around June through to August, so this is the perfect summer lunch or dinner recipe!

How do you pick a good zucchini at the grocery store?

When choosing a zucchini, make sure it is fairly firm and not too soft. It should feel similar to a cucumber but a little bit more flexible. Try to avoid zucchinis that are too soft as they will end up being mushy when cooked.
