The majority of Canadians do not consume enough vegetables and fruit on a regular basis. This can be for a variety of reasons, such as finances, time, not knowing how to prepare them, not liking the taste of them, and more. Finding fun and tasty ways to incorporate vegetables into our meals and snacks is a great way to provide our body with fibre and other key nutrients that help to promote our overall health, including our digestive health.
Zucchinis are part of the squash family and are a great source of vitamin C and other nutrients, such as vitamin B6, vitamin A, and magnesium. They can be sliced in half and grilled with a little olive oil and other seasonings, sauteed in your favourite stir fry sauce, or hollowed out and used to make pizza zucchini boats.
Some other vegetables or fruits that make a great addition to breakfasts include avocados on toast, mushrooms and spinach in an omelet, berries on french toast, peaches with cottage cheese, kale and mango in a smoothie bowl, banana on oatmeal, or tomatoes and lettuce in a breakfast wrap.
