Depends on the type of squash....according to the Zone block chart (, yellow and spaghetti squashes are fine, butternut is "moderately favorable" and should be eaten sparingly, and acorn and some others I haven't heard of are unfavorable. If you're doing Paleo, I'd say not to worry too much about squash....go easy on the butternut and acorn and eat up on the others.

Here's a recipe I found for butternut that was quite tasy:
1 butternut squash, halved longways and seeded
1/4c walnuts
2 tbsp olive or coconut oil

Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. Place it face down in a baking dish, add about an inch of water, and cook at 350 for 1 hour to 1:15. When done, remove the meat and mash it. Allow it to cool a bit, then add the oil, walnuts, and cinnamon. 3/4c cooked butternut squash is 1 block of carbs...1 butternut squash should yield 4-5 blocks of carbs with ~30 blocks of fat (you could cut the oil in half to knock out 9 blocks of fat).
