"Savory" is the word to describe this dense, buttery dinner bread, which can also be made into dinner rolls. They contain yummy, nutritious ZUCCHINI! You can't really taste the zucchini, but it's in there for you & your family to receive the wonderful health benefits! The green on the outside is especially rich in nutrients.
All about zucchini:
One raw, medium zucchini, including its skin, boasts 56 percent of your daily recommended value of vitamin C. It also delivers 11 percent of your daily value of vitamin K, 16 percent of riboflavin, 21 percent of vitamin B-6, and 14 percent of folate. This green summer squash is especially rich in minerals. One medium, raw zucchini, including skin, delivers 15 percent of your recommended daily value of potassium, 17 percent of manganese, and 8 percent of your daily value of magnesium. (source)
Zucchini is one of the most common foods on the market that is a genetically modified organism (GMO). It's worth the extra $ to but it organic.
How to Interpret Produce Labels:
- Produce labels that begin with 8 are GMO foods.
- Produce labels that begin with 9 are organic.
- Produce labels that begin with 3 & 4 are conventionally grown.
Wash all produce thoroughly, especially if you are going to eat the outside/peel.
