Is zucchini one of the most versatile vegetables? It sure seems like it. Brenda Duby, Corporate Dietician for the United Family of stores, stopped by the studio this week to talk about the advantages of using zucchini in your meals. According to Duby we are now at the peak of zucchini season.

Zucchini is very healthy. Duby says that zucchini is low in fat, calories, while being high in fiber and a great source of Vitamin C. Duby says that the new trend in zucchini is to ditch the pasta and instead make noodles out of zucchini. Zucchini also tastes great on the grill!

Another benefit of zucchini from United Supermarkets? It's local. It's grown right here in Lubbock, picked in the morning, and delivered to the stores.
