I feel Squashed!: Healthy Eating

Source of Photo: What's Cooking America

It takes a little bit of effort to cook squash but the taste and the health benefits are profound.Squash is a rich source of C and B vitamins along with minerals. Orange squash has a tremendous amount of carotene, vitamin A which helps prevent cancer and protects you from infection in the winter months.


Here are some of my favorite squash recipes from my food parties this Fall.

We are preparing for the Frankenstorm here on the Northeast of the US, so if I don't respond to your comments I apologize now... it is probably because we lost power.
Stay safe, stay warm....

  1. The Southwesterrn Tabbouleh Stuffed Squash looks great.
    I find that I eat a lot more squash since I've gone gluten free. We use spaghetti squash instead of pasta, use zucchini slices as noodles in lasagna, etc...I've become quite fond of squash recently.

    1. Just think how healthy it is that your eating so many more vegetables. I am wheat free because of food allergies and I can't get over how much better I feel just not eating wheat.

  2. Thanks for posting some squash recipes. I cannot get enough of the stuff each Fall.

    I'm thinking of you as this storm blasts through your area. I have the news stations on and it looks horrific. Although I've been able to get through to my friends on Long Island and in Philadelphia, it's not pretty. Be safe and take care.

  5. I am glad you shared these squash dishes. I have different kinds of squash lined up, on my counter and I was not sure how I was going to use them. You have given me a good start.
