Can’t Beat Butternut!

Butternut Squash

I am a warm summer weather type of girl but I will tell you that once butternut squash hits the shelves I am a happy camper. Butternut squash is high in fiber, potassium (which is important for bone health) and vitamin B6, which helps with proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems. The squash’s vibrant color is trying to tell you something as well, it is a powerhouse of nutrients known as carotenoids, which are shown to protect against heart disease. Below are a couple of my favorite recipes using this delightful nutrient-packed squash.
