Summer is here, and that means fresh fruits and veggies are in season! Zucchini and yellow squash are among the seasonal favorites you’ll find in grocery stores and home gardens, and for good reason. These versatile squashes aren’t just delicious, they’re also “pain-safe,” meaning they won’t trigger migraine headaches in people with sensitivity, and they’re high in vitamin A, which helps protect your smile from oral cancers.
Zucchini and yellow squash make for a quick and easy side dish when brushed with a little olive oil or butter, but they can also play the part of an entrée. This savory dish combines summer squashes with herbs and cheese to create a gooey, tasty delight that’s perfect on its own or as a colorful complement to any summer meal. What’s more, cheese can neutralize acids in your mouth and help protect against plaque and cavities!
