Missing out.

I don’t know about you, but diet and lifestyle changes have a way of introducing you to new and delicious foods. Foods that you might have thought you didn’t like. For me, one of those foods was zucchini.

Before switching to a real food, gluten free diet 6 years ago, I don’t think I’d ever tried zucchini, and I was sure I wouldn’t like it! But after a friend offered me some of her garden-fresh zucchini, I was hooked. It was so refreshing and sweet!

I had been missing out on so much! Not only is zucchini delicious, it’s full of vitamins A & C, antioxidants, beta-carotin, and potassium. It’s very versatile, too. You can eat it raw, steamed, baked, boiled, in breads, as pasta, and more!

All the zucchini things!

Now I can’t get enough of all the zucchini recipes! If you’re like me, and enjoy finding new ways to use zucchini, or you just have too much in your garden and need to use it up, I’ve rounded up over 100 delicious zucchini recipes. And they’re all gluten-free and refined-sugar free!

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and even snacks! These recipes are beautiful, creative ways to get all that nutritious zucchini goodness into your diet

So grab your zucchini and enjoy…


Thought zucchini was only a side dish to go with your dinner? Think again! There are some delicious ways to serve up zucchini for breakfast!
