    is there any brains here with nutritional comparisons of root veggies vs winter squashes?

    which ones pack the most vitamins/minerals?

    how to they compare in sugar/starch and carbs?

    nutritiondata.com has all you need to compare individual foods

    Pumpkin has much less carb than any of the root vegetables. It is antiinflammatory too, which only some of the root vegetables (eg kumera - orange sweet potato) are
