Be a Better Butternut

Why eat “I’ll have diabetes with that” spuds when you can eat mellow, healthy butternut squash?
This delicately-flavored squash typically comes cubed in the produce section. It’s also a popular soup puree. And it sure beats other starchy vegetables in the nutrition department . One serving gives you half your daily vitamin C requirement and 450% of your vitamin A requirement! At 80 calories per cup (compared to 100 for a small potato), with little impact on your blood sugar , butternuts are just better! You can mash, bake, puree, slice, and dice to your heart’s content.
