Our family has been making the effort to switch to an alkaline diet for optimal health. To those who may not know what an alkaline diet is, it’s one which focuses upon eating foods that promote a healthy pH balance in the body for preventing illnesses that can develop when the body’s pH is not in balance.

Zucchini is an alkaline food and contains vitamins and minerals that are said to reduce cholesterol levels and high blood pressure, to promote strong teeth and bones, and to provide a rich amount of antioxidants.
