Chef Tim Says...
In the U.K. these are called courgette after the French word for zucchini. Like tomatoes, squash are technically fruit although we think of it as a vegetable. They are in season only during May through July in the Northern Hemisphere, but are now readily available, being shipped from all over the globe. In the winter months they can be more woody and I prefer to use out of season zukes for stews or breads. Zucchini
Featured Recipe: Zucchini Bread
This is a little more difficult to make than a simple muffin recipe. The extra step of whipping the egg whites until frothy is worth it, though, because it adds a lightness to the bread that it doesn’t have otherwise. While the recipe seems to have a lot of ingredients most of them are pretty common pantry items and this is well worth making. Rich, moist, spicy -- the perfect quick bread for breakfast.

Ask Dr. Gourmet
When following the original "eatTHISdiet" plan, I am to have two servings of breakfast and lunch with one serving for dinner. When it says 2 servings of breakfast, does that mean I would have for example, two blueberry muffins and 2 servings of fruit? Or would it mean only 2 muffins and one fruit?
Dr. Gourmet Says...
The answer to your question about servings is that you would have two muffins and two servings of fruit. A lot of my patients and users of eatTHISdiet will save the second piece of fruit for a mid morning snack. More on using eatTHISdiet
