Is there such a thing as too much Zucchini?
Zucchini is a vegetable that can grow as big as a baseball bat and growing in my garden, like in many others in large quantities. Packed with nutrition. Helps with digestion, can give you energy for your day and may even help you age slower.
It is definitely better to eat the vegetables that are in season locally, but you shouldn’t eat zucchini all at the same time. While eating too many vegetables isn’t as a bad of addiction as saying sugar addiction, but it could get problematic for your health. Vegetables are for sure good for us, but don’t consume them to excess. If you eat too much of them, at the exclusion of other carbs and protein your health could suffer. If you eat more than the recommended amount of vegetables, you could end up with a digestive issue- bloating, gas or sometimes something more serious.
National Zucchini Day- August 8th.
I have recently read about the celebration of zucchini. It is celebrated in August (when zucchini is harvested), it is widely celebrated as National Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day. Which means, don’t just go throwing zucchini around, it’s all about sneaking the texture and taste of zucchini into your favorite recipes and then passing out to your friends and neighbors.
So, go ahead and sneak some zucchini on your neighbor’s porch on August 8, and to alert others use #SneakSomeZucchiniIntoYourNeighborsPorchDay to post on social media.
