Ask the Nutritionist: Add cartenoid-rich winter squash, sweet potatoes to cold-weather menus

Winter squash, pumpkin and sweet potatoes are packed with potassium, which seems to promote good blood pressure control. All are good sources of vitamin C, too, with sweet potatoes containing the highest amounts. Sweet potatoes are richer in natural sugars and starches than most vegetables, making them higher in calories.
