One gem of a squash!

All the goodness from one squash!
All the goodness from one squash!


Summer squash, yellow courgette, Patty Pan, whatever you call it in your part of the world, is packed full of fiber and vitamins and because the taste is so smooth, neutral and unoffensive you can use it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

I want to tell you about some benefits, it’s not just a bright yellow veg!


It might help you snap out of that bad mood!

It’s really high in manganese which is great for relieving symptoms of PMT, cramps and those demon mood swings!

It helps you see things clearer! Literally!

It’s got lots of antioxidants that are great for your eye health, most of these are in the skin, so don’t peel your squash!

It can replace your banana in smoothies!

If you like your smoothies really creamy but are worried about the extra sugar, try yellow squash. Because the taste is neutral I promise you won’t even notice! Plus you’ll get added potassium, Vitamin C and fiber!

It’s good for you if you’re pregnant! 

1 cup of summer squash contains about 9 percent of the recommended daily intake of folate, a mineral necessary for healthy baby brain growth!

I use Yellow Squash in most of my cleanse programmes – it can also be eaten raw or just lightly sauteed as a side dish. Easy peasy and packed with goodness!
