Delicata Squash

Tid Bit(e) Tuesday

Delicata Squash! This squash was the first squash I ever liked and know I LOVE all squash!! Its really super easy to make too because you can eat the skin. You just chop it up and throw it in the oven

  1. FIBER- Most squash has fiber but a lot of it is stored in the skin which you don’t usually eat!! But you can eat delicata squash which makes it a fiber-rich food!!
  2. IMMUNE HEALTH- Along with fiber, delicata is packed with vitamin C! Vitamin C is stored in your cells to help protect the immune system (1)
  3. STRONG BONES- Contains 24% of your daily value of calcium!!
  4. COMPLEX CARBS- All squash is made up of complex carbohydrates. These are carbs that don’t spike your insulin all at once, they increase insulin gradually (this also means no crash). This will keep you fuller for longer!
