The Wonders of Winter Squash

Winter squash season is peaking right now and you should pick some up next time you're at the grocery store. Here's why. One cup is loaded with vitamin A and beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Squash is also high in vitamin C, folate and fiber. All this and it is low in calories - about 79 for a cup.

I cut a squash (any or all of them) in half, scoop out the seeds, spray the flesh with a little cooking oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast at 425 degrees for 20 minutes for the small one and 45 minutes for the large ones.

Squash - if the lovely orange of its flesh doesn't sway you, remember it is delicious and nutritious.
