Is Zucchini a Fruit?

Zucchini is an incredibly healthy vegetable –well, it’s technically a fruit.

This summer squash is a superfood full of vitamins A and C and loaded with potassium and folate. Furthermore, zucchini is nutritious because it’s:

  • High Fiber
  • Low Calorie
  • Antioxidant Rich

Almond Flour Zucchini Bread with Organic Coconut Oil

One of the ingredients that gives this bread a moist, rich texture is a small amount of coconut oil.

Studies have shown that in addition to numerous other health benefits, coconut oil can help the immune system mount resistance to viruses.

Coconut Oil and Gut Motility

One thing to note, however, is that in addition to MCTs, coconut oil contains saturated fat, which can cause sluggish gut motility. I keep my consumption of it in check to keep things moving down there.
