Health Benefits of Summer Squash

Summer Squash are abundant during the summer and are full of vitamin C and A plus calcium and iron. Plus they have no fats, no sodium, and a good amount of fiber to help you stay healthy. Summer Squash help lower your blood pressure, thus preventing heart disease and strokes. They are full of lutein and other nutrients that prevent macular degeneration and lots of great anti-oxidants such as beta-carotene that prevent cancer. And Summer Squash are full of special polysaccharides that protect against diabetes. And they are very low in calories which makes Summer Squash a great way to lose weight and get in shape for the beach. I love making Summer Squash lasagna with just a touch of low fat ricotta cheese and lots of flavor!
