26 WWW.EATINEATOUT.CA SUPER SQUASH: Nutritionally speaking, pumpkin is nothing short of a rock star. It's an excellent source of fibre, vitamins A, C, and E, Beta Carotene, and is quite low in calories. Including it in sweet or savoury foods is a fantastic way of incorporating these nutrients into your diet without sacrificing flavour. CHOOSE IT RIGHT: If you plan to roast and puree your own pumpkin, go for a sugar pumpkin. It's smaller than the type you would typically use for carving, and tends to be darker in colour. The flesh is also thicker. Look for a firm, unblemished fruit that doesn't give when pushed in with your fingers.
