I have to admit that I’m changing quiet often from location so at the moment I am located in Australia. It’s summer and pretty hot, especially at the Sunshine coast! For that reason I like to combine a warm dish together with something refreshing such as my zucchini salad.
Eating raw zucchini has a lot of advantages. Although it consists mostly out of water, by preparing it raw with its skin it keeps all its vitamins and minerals. I’m highlighting the fact that you need to prepare it with its skin cause it’s in the skin that you’ll find the best out of it. And to be even more precise I’m talking about vitamin A & C and potassium.
I’m a bit obsessed by potassium, especially because during my stay in Canada almost everything was really really salty. To regulate the sodium level in your body you need to eat more potassium. that’s why I’m always using diet salt when I’m cooking. It still has a salty taste but it just has no sodium in it. Also, I’m often adding cheese in my dishes which has salt in it so I actually need that potassium just to be certain not to have to much salt in my dish and in my body.
