Step by step

Peel the courgettes cutting off the two ends

Tips
When you buy courgettes, look out for the following: they must be firm, with a bright colour, and smooth, tight skin - choose only small ones. For dieting, the courgette is ideal as it has only 11 kcal per 100g, so you will certainly not run the risk of gaining weight.
Trivia
The courgette is appreciated for its diuretic and laxative effects. Also it is easily digested. It’s suitable for children, the elderly and convalescents. They can also be used for beauty treatments, that is, as an emollient, anti-wrinkle and moisturizing face wash whereby you just blend the veg flesh and apply it to your face.
