DIRECTIONS

Did you know?

It’s no secret that we love zucchini here at LowFatLowCarb.com, but forget all those zucchini noodle recipes for now and brace yourself for these zucchini boats! They’re filled with worldly, delicious flavors – literally.

If you’ve read any of our other zucchini recipes, I’m sure you know all about how they’re super rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, and B-complex vitamins as well as dietary fiber which can help protect against colon cancer and ensure a healthy bowel. But do you know how to store them properly to keep them fresher longer?

Since zucchinis are available year-round and are super versatile, they’re perfect to keep on hand in case of a lunch or dinner emergency. But make sure you’re buying the best ones in the market. When it comes to zucchinis it’s a plus if you’re someone who’s attracted to shiny things. Buy medium-sized, firm and heavy zucchini featuring shiny, bright skin. When you get home, place them in a plastic bag and store them in the veggie crisper of your fridge for up to 2-3 days.

If you find yourself in a dinner emergency and don’t have any zucchini on hand, try one of these low-fat, low-carb recipes instead: Spicy Shrimp and Cauliflower Rice Bowl, Arugula Chicken Salad, or Chicken & Enoki Mushroom Stir Fry.

P.S. Did you know in the UK they call zucchini “courgette” and zucchini noodles “courgetti”?
