This popular garden vegetable has a good combination of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, folate, manganese, and potassium – all important for heart health. Most of these nutrients reside in the skin and the darker the zucchini, the more nutrients, especially beta-carotene and minerals. Like all summer squashes, zucchini are very low in calories and high in water content. Try some squash just lightly steamed rather than fried or in casseroles; you’ll enjoy the maximum of nutrients and retain the low calorie count.
