butternut squashAlthough technically a fruit, butternut squash is one of the tastiest members of the cucurbit vegetable family. Native Americans in the Western Hemisphere new its ancestor as "askutasquash", which was eaten raw and unripe. Centuries later this species would be developed into the current "butternut" variety with its signature sweet, buttery, and nutty flavor. Butternut squash is well known for containing high levels of vitamin A, and is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium, which are all needed for a healthy immune system and to promote healthy bowel movements. It is commonly used as a base ingredient for a variety of immunity boosting and bowel regulating soups, particularly in the fall or winter months when they are harvested.

It considered a "yin-within-yin herb" that pushes out the old to create the new, expeling old filth in order to quiet the five yin organs.
