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.
