5 Super Healthy Squash Recipes

Squash is one of the most versatile and delectable foods available all over the world. It is one of the oldest cultivated crops on earth and an important part of the “Three Sister Crops” along with maize and beans. There are dozens of squash varieties and are simplified into either summer or winter squash depending on the season when the fruit ripens. Medical professionals would always emphasize the importance of including squash to our daily diet.
