We seem to avoid low-carb squash because we don’t know what to do with it or how to bake it. Well, it’s easier than you think, plus all squash are wildly nutritious. Remember: orange foods contain beta-carotene which your body converts to cancer-fighting vitamin A.
Obtaining your daily vitamins through food sources such as spaghetti squash is infinitely more beneficial than taking vitamin supplements.
Beta-carotene adds attractive colors and nutritional value to many familiar fruits and vegetables. Studies led by Agricultural Research Service provide information on the ability of our bodies to absorb beta-carotene and convert it into vitamin A.
The USDA National Nutrient Database says Spaghetti squash also contains vitamin C, B-6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, vitamin K, manganese and FIBER.
