We have had discussions on this before! IP just could not possibly account for every veggie in the universe on the sheet. They say zucchini yes and if you look at the nutrition for green zucchini vs the yellow, it is almost identical!!

In full disclosure, last time this came up, so one did ask their coach. The coach said, "no squash!" ... Zucchini IS squash. Yellow zucchini is squash... Most other yellow squashes are winter squashes (spaghetti squash, butternut, acorn, etc) again, the profile of the long skinny slightly pudgy at on end yellow "zucchini squash" is pretty much the same as the green... So I guess everyone needs to make that call for themselves!

1 cup:
Yellow zucchini 33 cals 8 carb 4 fiber Green zucchini 33 cals 6 carb 2 fiber


FUNNY how now we get SOOOO EXCITED to find out we can have yellow zucchini!!

I still find it funny that we stress about anything that has 33 calories. LOL. But the carbs/fibres balance to same net carbs so you're right IMO - seems they'd be fine.

I've only just finished day 3 but for veggies I'm loving TJ's roasted asparagus from the frozen aisle.

I was sorely tempted today. Took the kids to Subway for dinner and you KNOW how good the bread smells! But I had a turkey chopped salad - it was very good

I started recording on Sunday!

I used to have WW Meetings in a grocery store at 8am beside the bakery. Brutal!
