Yellow squash (one of the summer squash varieties), is a great food to start including in your diet, if you don’t already. You may have noticed there are two kinds of yellow squash — the kind that is straight, and the kind that has a curved neck. In both cases, the bottom of the squash is larger than the top. While the skin can be smooth or bumpy, it’s always thin and when you cut into it, you’ll notice that the flesh is whiter and has bigger seeds than the inside of a zucchini.
Full of vitamins A, B, and C, plus fiber, magnesium, potassium, iron, and folate, this is one summer vegetable you’ll want to stop passing over. And, adding this yellow variety of the Cucurbita pepo family helps you to eat more of the rainbow.
