This is the season where zucchini's rule. Huge leafy plants 4-5 feet around that produce an abundance of squash, zucchini exemplifies the good news/bad news line. The good news: we have bunches of zucchini. The bad news: we have bunches of zucchini!
Zucchini is a great vegetable for the season. It supports the Earth element, dominant in late summer, and generates fluids. One cup sliced only has 29 calories, 3 grams of fiber, 7 grams of carbs and even has a gram of protein! It also has vitamins A, C, K, minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron.

So how do you cook this wonder veggie? Zucchini parmigiana? Zucchini juice ( actually zucchini juice works quite well with carrot). Please send in your ideas and recipes? Thanks. (I got about 25 pounds of zucchini last weekend! I had a couple of extra plants because I thought the first few I planted were not going to make it. I was wrong.)
