With bright colors and an intriguing variety of shapes and textures, winter squash is an eye-catcher in the produce aisle this time of year, but its beauty is more than rind deep. Its nutritional profile is equally attractive.

“One cup of baked squash has only 80 calories but 6 grams of fiber,” says Joan Salge Blake, M.S., R.D., clinical associate professor at Boston University. “And winter squash is a great source of vitamin A. In fact, a serving provides almost half of a woman’s needs for the day.”

Most varieties of squash store well for three to six months at cool temperatures (around 50°F). The thicker the skin, the longer they’ll keep. Tasty standbys such as acorn and spaghetti squash are probably familiar, but you’ll find many more varieties just waiting to become new favorites.
