Squash is probably one of the most versatile veggies out there. It can be enjoyed in sweet or savory dishes and included in any meal of the day! What other veggie can do that?!

And squash is loaded with nourishing vitamins and minerals…it’s especially high in potassium, Vitamin A, and fiber. A cup of butternut squash has more potassium than a banana! What’s not to love!!

Here are 17 Health Coach Approved recipes that use various types of squash….I’ve noted some healthier variations on a few of the recipes….

1. Turkey Stuffed Acorn Squash

5. Slow Cooker Thai Butternut Squash Soup

For a Health Coach Approved variation: omit the sugar, use light coconut milk, sub low sodium broth for the 1-2 C. milk!

6. Butternut Squash Banana Bread

I bake so sparingly but you gotta enjoy life too and, for bread, this recipe is about as healthy as it gets! To make it less sugary I would use just 1/3 C. pure maple syrup or brown sugar (omit the rest!).
