Color of the Week - YELLOW
So you might be thinking, why is the color of the week yellow when zucchini are most definitely green? Zucchini are yellow inside! Sometimes the insides of fruits and veggies are the prettiest part. Think of all the fun produce that can fit more than one category! We think of kiwi as green although they are brown on the outside. This week we rounded up yellow squash, lemons, bananas, and of course zucchini. Zucchini is one of those awesome veggies that can be turned into just about anything! One of our favorite ways to eat it is in our baked goods. We all know that yummy zucchini bread, but add in a few other ingredients and you have a new twist on an old favorite!
