Nutrition Facts

Both raw and cooked zucchini are great for the overall health of an individual.

Zucchini Is Awesome For The Heart: ❤️

Zucchini contains good amounts of potassium that helps reduce blood pressure. It also contains moderate levels of folate that breaks down amino acids like homocysteine that cause heart attacks and strokes. The considerable amount of magnesium helps in keeping blood pressure at a normal rate and the heart beat at a steady rhythm.

Zucchini Helps In Weight Loss: 💪

Zucchini has incredibly low calories that make it a much-preferred part of any weight loss diet. Substituting calorie rich foods with a sizable portion of zucchini helps you in reducing the number of calories that are taken in. This makes it easier to burn off calories, thereby helping you lose weight. The fiber content helps in burning the fat in the body. Zucchini also keeps the body hydrated with its 95 percent water content. This gives you more energy and fewer headaches.

Zucchini Helps Lower Cholesterol: 💉

The high-fiber content in zucchini helps in lowering cholesterol. The high levels of vitamin A and Vitamin C delays the beginning of atherosclerosis by keeping the cholesterol from oxidizing the body’s blood vessels. Zucchini rids the body of excess toxins.

Here is a recipe he used to make a “Healthy Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie”:

Topping:
1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2″ cubes

2 garlic cloves, halved

1/4 c chicken broth, low-sodium (or milk if you prefer)
1 T butter (optional, you could use olive oil, or whatever fat you’d like)
1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling:
1 1/4 lb ground turkey
1 small yellow onion, chopped
Bag of mixed veggies (If you got frozen veggies, go for those. There is no wrong way to do this, so use what you got! I just happen to have this bag of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower, so I chose to use that)
1/4 c chicken broth
8 oz can tomato sauce, no salt added
2 T Worcestershire sauce (technically not paleo, so leave it out if you wish)
1 t dried sage
salt & black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Put sweet potato cubes and garlic in a medium pot, with enough salted water to just cover potatoes

Bring to a boil and boil for ~ 15 minutes. Sweet potatoes are done when you can easily stick a fork in them and they slide right off.

Drain, mash or beat with a mixer and gradually add chicken broth (or milk), butter, and salt.

Keep mashing/beating until smooth, you may have to use a little more than 1/4 c of liquid depending on desired consistency.

Set aside and cover to keep warm.

Heat a large skillet and saute veggies (if you are using frozen veggies, start by browning the turkey) Don’t forget to season!

Once the veggies and meat are browned, add tomato sauce, sage, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to turkey mixture

*when the meat is browned, you can choose to drain the fluid.

Spoon turkey mixture into casserole dish then spoon the mashed sweet potato mixture on top and spread in an even layer.

I used a fork and ran it over the top so that when it baked, you got some crispy peaks and it created a bit of texture when you hit it with the broiler at the end.

Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes, and broil on high until the top browns. Keep an eye on it when you are broiling!

Let rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Sprinkle with some fresh parsley, and ENJOY!
