Butternut squash is a fantastic food and despite it being a “winter” squash, it is ready to eat now.

This winter squash is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A, carotenoids and fiber. These nutrients are integral for your skin, eye and digestive health. Butternut squash is great when roasted or used in different soups and chilis. Feel free to use frozen butternut squash if you can’t find it fresh or just for the sake of convenience! If you are planning to buy it fresh, then be sure you know how to peel it.

Don’t forget to save the seeds and roast them for an incredibly tasty and nutritious snack.
