Fall time FAAAV!
I still remember the first time I saw someone eating a squash for their main dish at dinner. I thought it was so peculiar, so healthy, and honestly something I would never do! Haaha. Let's just say I've slowly come along on my healthier cravings. I seriously would kill to gobble down this recipe right now! haahaa. The longer you just take baby steps in the right, healthier direction, the easier it becomes and the more your body starts to CRAVE the good stuff!
So, are there any fellow butternut squash lovers out there??? I couldn't leave a tasty tuesday without sharing some sort of recipe!!!
And, did you know that you can roast the Butternut Squash seed just like pumpkin seeds?! Heck yeah!!! Just salt them or spice/herbs, whatever flaaaav you like! mmmm. :)
