Zucchinis or Rabbits – Which Reproduce Faster?

From what I hear, this seems to be a common problem. It being the problem of overpopulation. No, I’m not talking about people, I’m talking about zucchinis. It seems that they multiply even faster than rabbits do. If you know someone with a plant or two, then you probably have been lucky enough to get free zucchini.

I know people who own zucchini plants find them to be a never ending pain to keep up with. If you don’t check them often enough then you end up with an enormous gourd that may be impressive in size, but not always delicious. I prefer the smaller sized zucchini for grilling or sautéing. I like to use the larger ones for breads and muffins. I have heard of pureeing them and sneaking them into brownies or cakes. (I think this is supposed to make you feel less guilty about eating dessert.)

Besides making delicious bread, zucchini also has some great health benefits. The potassium and magnesium in zucchini help to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. The vitamins A and C found in zucchini make it an anti-inflammatory. Additionally all the dietary fiber and folate in zucchini help to aid in cancer prevention. I guess zucchini could be called a superfood. It’s super delicious and super good for you too!
