Butternut and Acorn Squash
Both Butternut Squash and Acorn Squash are cool weather vegetables that deserve a prominent place at your table.
Butternut Squash provides one and a half times your daily recommended amount of vitamin A and nearly half of vitamin C.
The calories in winter squashes are similar, but butternut squash is much higher in vitamin A than either spaghetti or acorn squash. Because of its dark orange color, butternut squash is one of the best sources of beta carotene, a precursor to vitamin A. It also contains vitamins C, E and B vitamins.
