A is for Autumn and Acorn Squash

Acorn Squash contains vitamin A, niacin, folate, thiamine and vitamin B-6, but it is an especially good source of vitamin C.It is low on the Glycemic Index and only has 76 calories per cup. 

One of my favorite ways to make Acorn Squash is cut it in half, spray tops with Pam or rub a little olive oil, roast it in the oven with a little bit of maple syrup, chopped walnuts and cranberries.

A perfect side dish to go along with any Autumn meal.
