That’s right! Today, August 8th, is National Zucchini Day!
The wonderful, tasty,long, green veggie actually gets a day where we can celebrate all its goodness.
I personally LOVE zucchinis because they are so versatile. From mock crab cakes to amazing gluten free zucchini breads, these veggies are one of my favorite.
Garden Lites also wanted me to help spread the word about National Zucchini Day. They make some amazingly delicious muffins that you can find in the freezer section of your grocery store.
Awhile back, I did a review for them and their Chocolate Zucchini Muffins were one of my favorites.
Look for them at your local grocery store today and celebrate National Zucchini Day with the family!
Enjoying a delicious Garden Lites Muffin is a healthy and easy way to celebrate National Zucchini Day on August 8! Zucchini is the most abundant ingredient in the three leading varieties of Garden Lites Muffins, an innovative and unique snack made of 1/3 vegetables. These scrumptious snacks are gluten-free, vegetarian, low in calories, high in fiber and Kosher Parve. These muffins have hit the shelves as the demand for healthier, convenient frozen food options continues to grow.
Available nationwide, these two ounce treats are a filling convenient snack that can be found in the freezer sections of your local store. Garden Lites Muffins thaw at room temperature which makes them a great portable option to have on hand during road trips, beach days, and camp lunches. Another great way to enjoy the muffins is warm; heated up in the microwave in only 35 seconds.
