Pumpkin seeds are loaded with zinc, magnesium, vitamin E and healthy oils.

One medium-sized zucchini has as much potassium as an average banana, and more than a cup of fat-free milk.

Cucurbitacins, found in many types of squash, are powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. There is promising research, too, supporting their anticancer properties.

Canned pumpkin has more than 750% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A in less than one cup, more than nearly any other natural food.

Pumpkin, butternut, acorn, pattypan, zucchini, kabocha, hubbard, spaghetti--the variety of squashes is only surpassed by the number of ways you can enjoy their taste and nutritional benefits. Forget the mushy side dish you may be accustomed to eating at holiday dinners. You can make delicious sundae toppings, pancakes, muffins, breads, soups, dips, risotto, burgers, casseroles--and an incredibly easy butternut "bacon" that you'll want to eat every day.

Featuring more than 100 recipes from morning to night, The Everyday Squash Cook also includes tips on handling, cutting and storing squash and a handy visual guide to the most common varieties.
