Is it safe to eat winter squash (butternut) raw? Like shaved in a salad? What about sweet potato?

Answer »

Yes, to both. Though they are both better when cooked as well as easing their ability to be digested

Don't see why not. Good fiber too. Sweet potato julienned with a dip is tasty too.

Yes you can and it is delicious. Here is a recipe from Bittman a great raw butternut squash salad with raisins and ginger http://www.nytimes.com....

In the raw food world, which is also vegan, there is nothing that cannot be eaten raw. And raw is preferred because of health benefits. I consider myself a flexitarian and I have several raw food recipe books I use all the time.
