We adore squash all year round with its 45kcal per 100g, no saturated fats and high fibre content and phyto-nutrients.

But the best thing about butternut squash is that 100g gives you a whopping 354% of RDA of vitamin A. This soluble vitamin is a powerful antioxidant, crucial for maintaining a good vision, neurological function, and healthy skin. Vitamin A is also a strong antioxidant to build strong bones, immune system, and bone structure.

And a final thought! Don't throw away the seeds as they are an excellent source of fibre, mono-unsaturated fatty acids, protein, minerals, and the whole range of vitamins. Roast them up and they are ideal as a snack!
