Why We Should Be Eating More Courgette/Zucchini?

This is the fourth in a month’s worth of Veg-based content to encourage you to eat more Vegetables  daily.

 

Instead of going for the junk food on autopilot, why not go for some Courgettes/Zucchinis instead?

 

  Let’s get into it below!

 

My Case

 I know a lot of you know this vegetable as Zucchini, but where I’m from we call it courgette… So I’m running with that from now!

 

 Courgette is a part of the Cucurbitacee fam and is related to veg like cucumbers & melon.

 

 We tend to cook this like a veg, but really botanically speaking it’s a fruit!

 

So you’re getting the best of both worlds when you eat a courgette.

 

 It’s been used in medicine to cure colds and aches/pains too, so eating them will help your body become stronger.

 

Courgettes have many minerals and vitamins in them…

Vitamin A

Vitamin C

Vitamin K

Vitamin B6

Manganese

Folate

Fibre

Potassium

Copper

Phosphorus

 

They are rich in water and fibre, yet low in calories…

 

These combos are very good as it can help reduce your hunger and help you feel full, which tends to lead to weight loss!

 

 Courgettes are very easy and versatile, that you can add it to your meals. You can eat it cooked or raw, with no issues of getting sick.

 

 My case is done, now it’s over to you.

 

Thank You For Reading!


WHAT’S THE VERDICT?

I’m leaving that to the jury.. which is all of YOU!


Let me know in the comments, if this is a veg you will eat more of or not.


Put I’ll eat or I won’t eat in the comment section.
