I keep posting how I love the summer bounty of fresh produce and right now our garden is runneth over with zucchini. So that means zucchini noodles, zucchini lasagna and zucchini bread. I made this version a little differently then I normally do, just because I used the flour I had in the cupboard and let me tell you it is still super moist and yummy. As many of you may know it is a very hydrating vegetable which is great for the hot summer months, but this summer squash is so much more. " While not often considered as a premiere food source of antioxidants, zucchini can provide you with unique amounts of antioxidant nutrients. While zucchini contains very little overall fat (only 1/2 gram per cup), the fat in zucchini (mostly stored in its edible seeds) is unique in composition and includes omega-3s, monounsaturates, and also medium chain fats. Zucchini is an excellent source of copper and manganese. It is a very good source of vitamin C, magnesium, dietary fiber, phosphorus, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin K. Additionally, it is a good source of vitamin B1, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, vitamin B2, pantothenic acid, calcium, iron, choline, and protein."
