WHY NOT WINTER SQUASH? The Perfect Addition to Your Menu
Some of the thick-skinned squashes, like hubbard, can last up to six months in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, the thin skins of delicata and acorn squash are even edible, so they don’t need to be peeled. Winter squash is the real Swiss army knife of vegetables. Winter squashes can be cubed, sliced, roasted, boiled, grilled, mashed, stuffed, spiralized or made into soup. There’s no end to the healthy recipes that call for winter squash. Serve them alongside roasted chicken, swap out the tortilla for butternut squash in an enchilada, or stuff some apples in an acorn squash for a spicy, buttery treat. However you prepare them, you’re sure to “fall” in love with this seasonal staple! Looking to work with a nutritionist who can help you take advantage of the healthiest foods all year long?

TESTIMONIALS At October Kitchen, our mission is to provide delicious, nourishing meals. In doing so, we hope to help our clients lead healthy and independent lives. Nothing fills our hearts more than knowing we’ve succeeded in our goal when we hear such kind words from our clients. “My boyfriend and I work long hours and by the time we get home, we do not feel like cooking. October Kitchen saved me! I enjoy being able to take out of the freezer homemade, healthy food and pop it in the oven (or microwave). So much better than Dream Dinners, where you spend hours there preparing your food and then when it’s time to eat it, you still have to prep it and cook it. Paul at October Kitchen already does everything for you and you just need to heat it up and eat. They use less salt and seasonings, so it’s good for everyone — ‘You can always add it, but you can’t take it out.’ Seeing as we have no health issues, we always ‘add it’ and that’s okay! Love, LOVE October Kitchen!” –Carol L. Vitamins and Minerals Winter squashes are high in vitamins and minerals like beta-carotene, vitamins A and C, folate, potassium, magnesium and calcium. This means that a serving of butternut squash at Thanksgiving dinner is not only delicious, but it’s also good for your skin, heart, bones and immune system. Move over potatoes — winter squash is back in season! Available everywhere from farm stands to the local supermarket, now is the time to take advantage of the goodness that is winter squash. With more than a dozen different squash varieties available, these versatile fall vegetables can help you easily change up your meals while providing a lot of nutrients and other health benefits. Gut Heath Whether you prefer pumpkin, butternut, acorn, delicata or kabocha, winter squash is great for your gut because it’s high in fiber, averaging 6 grams per cup. Low Carbs Compared to potatoes, winter squash is also lower in carbohydrates. Plus, the pectin in these nutrient powerhouses is anti-inflammatory, has antioxidant properties and supports healthy blood sugar levels.
