Have you ever wanted to eat a tower of cheesy goodness? Well, look no further than these cheesy zucchini towers! Ever since zucchini noodles (them, noodles) came on the scene, there’s been a bit of a rebrand, which I LOVE. But zucchini can’t be put in a box like that. It’s an incredibly versatile ingredient, so much so that it’s often referred to as a “culinary chameleon.” Many people love it because it’s low in calories and high in fiber. Whether you’re enjoying it as a tasty side dish or as the main course, these cheesy zucchini towers are a fun and flavorful way to switch up your usual meal routine. So, if you have any digestive issues, zucchini might just be your new best friend. 

Zucchinis may not be the most exciting vegetables out there, but they sure do pack a punch when it comes to benefits. Recent studies have gone on the explore the anti-cancer benefits of zucchini, specifically for its lutein, zeaxanthin and anti-oxidant contents. Knowing how good it is (and good for you), I know I’ll be eating more zucchini, which by the way, fun fact: though thought of as a vegetable, zucchini is actually a fruit! For starters, they are low in calories, making them a great addition to any meal if you’re trying to shed a few pounds. Zucchinis are also rich in fiber, which can help with digestion and keep you feeling full for longer periods of time. Plus, they contain a variety of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. But one of the most exciting things about zucchinis is how versatile they are – you can spiralize them into noodles, chop them up for stir-fries, or even grill them up for a tasty side dish. So the next time you’re at the grocery store, don’t overlook this humble vegetable – your body will thank you for it!
