Healthy Winter Squash Recipes and Cooking Tips

From grocery stores to CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), there are hard squash in the fall, harbingers of the winter ahead. Squash appeals to our instinct to settle in, to create hearty meals that will get us through the coming chill. Store winter squash in a cool spot with good air circulation (not the refrigerator, but a cool pantry or cellar) for up to 1 month. They will nourish you through the winter: one cup of cooked winter squash has few calories (around 80) but is high in both vitamin A (214 percent of the recommended daily value) and vitamin C (33 percent), as well as being a good source of vitamins B6 and K, potassium and folate. So settle in and enjoy these healthy winter squash recipes from EatingWell.
