Whether it’s acorn or butternut, take your pick because both are winter superfoods. Either variety of winter squash is abundant beginning in early fall and lasts all through winter. Winter squash has plenty of fiber, magnesium, beta carotene, and vitamins C and B6. Plus, eating it may help decrease your blood pressure and cholesterol. Squash is also super easy to cook with: simply dice, season, and roast in an oven for a flavorful side dish or use the roasted veggies as a base for a smooth, velvety butternut squash soup spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon.
