Butternut Squash

Posted by in News

Today’s book sneak peek tip is Butternut Squash… only 90 days until the book release!


While trying to find some new fruits to integrate into my diet regime, I came across the butternut squash; this is just one of the many varieties of the winter squash family.  I instantly recognized the name because I’ve seen it popping up more and more often in soups at restaurants.

One cup of this squash is less than 80 calories and it’s packed with Vitamins A and C, many B vitamins, potassium, fiber, and even includes some of those much sought after Omega 3’s.  Depending on your appetite, this is something that could be eaten as an entire meal, as a great side dish, or as a simple snack.

I picked one up at my local grocer that had a tag on it with simple instructions: wash, halve, wrap and microwave until soft (4 to 6 minutes).  Talk about easy!  Butternut squash has a natural sweetness to it, and you can enhance this by adding a little brown sugar, butter, or salt.  Be sure not to go over-board with the additions, however, or you’ll lose its low calorie benefit!


Fitness Attack #2, the book, is going to be released on Halloween 2010!  That’s right, 10/31/10!
