Hi guys! It feels like forever since I’ve posted you a recipe! Don’t you worry though, I’ve been cooking up a storm! While my meals have been pretty simple lately, that doesn’t mean they have been boring. The addition of spices and herbs can help meals pop without adding some of the calories or fats that cooking with a lot of oils/butter/ghee can. Now I know this isn’t everyone’s concern. I highly recommend doing what works for you. However, if you do have a need to keep your fats lower without lowering the flavor, this is a great recipe for you! As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been loving this program through my work that delivers fresh, organic groceries right to your work! This meal was inspired by the loads of butternut squash I received. I admit it, I may be obsessed with butternut squash. From homemade fries, to soup to stuffing them, I’ve been doing it all lately! While I don’t think anything could replace my love for sweet potatoes, butternut squash is getting close!
Not only does butternut squash offer a good amount of dietary fiber but it also provides a healthy dose of potassium and vitamin b6. What does that mean you ask? It helps boost both the nervous system and the immune system. Butternut squash is also packed with beta-carotene which is in turn converted to Vitamin A. And just when you thought this food couldn’t get any better, 1 cup is about half of your vitamin C for the day. It’s simple people, eat real food!
