I love your Vit K list showing low, medium, high levels of Vitamin K. I did not see zucchini listed. I roast it with yellow squash and peppers in a small amount of olive oil and need to know if I should peel it. Thank you for your wonderful website. It is very educational and I am going to share the info with my family physician so he can point other warfarin patients to it.
Dr. Gourmet Says...
Wow, your recipe of roasting squash, zucchini and peppers together sounds fantastic. Having the zucchini is safe whether you peel it or not.
A medium sized raw zucchini has 5 micrograms (mcg) of Vitamin K and a cup of chopped comes in at 8 mcg. This would be considered a low amount of Vitamin K.
You can find six weeks of meal plans, recipes and a host of information that is designed for users of Coumadin (warfarin) in the Dr. Gourmet book available for both download and in print at this link:
The book also has comprehensive lists of ingredients and the amount of Vitamin K that each contains for your reference.
Thanks for writing,
Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.
