Autumn is.... finding a purpose for every pumpkin in the patch. 

 

Though all varieties of squash are good nutrition choices, winter varieties tend to be more nutrient-dense. They generally contain much more beta-carotene and more of several B vitamins than summer squash. It provides significant amounts of: 

Potassium (important for bone health) 
Vitamin B6 (essential for the proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems) 
Folate (helps guard against brain and spinal-cord-related birth defects) 
Fiber (promotes a healthy gut and protects against colon cancer) 
Carotenoids (protect against cancer and heart disease) 
Very high levels of beta-carotene (which your body automatically converts to vitamin A) 
With only a 1-cup serving, you get nearly half the recommended daily dose of antioxidant-rich vitamin C. 
Beta-carotene content is close to that of mangoes and cantaloupe. That's a benefit in the fight against cancer, heart disease, and cataracts. 
Beta-carotene may also play a role in reducing lung inflammation and emphysema. 
Most importantly, it is super delicious.
