Spaghetti Squash

Good Body Benefits: It looks like a long yellow pumpkin. Inside are strands – like "spaghetti" – with omega-3 fatty acids, thought to cut your risk of heart disease and be good for overall health.

How to Prepare: Roast it, says Greg Mudge of Mudgie's Deli in Detroit. Cut in half, remove seeds, and brush with olive oil. Bake, cut-side up, for 45 minutes at 375 F on a big baking dish with a bit of water. Let cool; use fork to remove the insides. Serve plain or mix with regular spaghetti pasta.
