Zucchini Eating Suggestions
Try to snack on a banana daily before or after a workout. Freeze extra bananas to add to smoothies for a creamy consistency and added nutrients. For breakfast, try adding sliced banana to your oatmeal. You can naturally sweeten desserts with bananas to decrease number of refined sugars. For instance, try creating “nice” cream by freezing bananas and blending it into a delicious tasting ice cream replacement. If you love bananas, consider one of my delicious recipes, healthy Korean beef zoodles bowl, or my low sugar strawberry maple smoothie, made with surprisingly zucchini. You can also try out my how-to-make blueberry zucchini healthy breakfast cookies (Video).
