Post Squash?

I tried some acorn squash the other night- baked with some apricot preserves and butter. YUMMMMM.

My question is: is squash okay for low-carb dieting? Or any kind of dieting, for that matter? I know the butter and preserves don't make it any healthier!

Any ideas about other ways to prepare it?

I love squash, especially cooked with butter. But lately I've just been eating it cooked with salt and pepper. Maybe that butter spray stuff would be a better idea........??

Acorn squash, like all hard/winter squash, contains a fair amount of carbohydrate. They are a perfectly healthy veggie - loaded with vitamin A and other goodies - but may kill your carb budget if you are on a strict plan.

Mmmmm....I used to LOVE acorn squash baked with butter and brown sugar....but I guess 44 carbs for the squash itself, and 100000000 carbs for all the brown sugar I'd add isn't a good thing....

Boy, but if I had some in front of me I wouldn't say no!

You've made me hungry with this one...time for dinner!
With Love,
