Ever since learning about the health benefits of acorn squash, I have been finding any excuse I can to add this amazing food to my paleo recipes! For instance, one cup of acorn squash contains 145% of the daily recommended requirements for Vitamin A. It also offers big doses of Vitamin C, potassium, manganese, folic acid, fiber and even Omega-3s! With all of its phytonutrients, acorn squash is considered to reduce the risk of cancer. Now that makes for a dessert you don't have to feel guilty about eating! This is one of the most delicious of my favorite easy recipes!
I am all about fast and easy recipes as most of you know. I do not want to spend each night laboring over my stove and doing dishes. Hence, I try and find recipes to share that I too like I respect my time- in fact I cherish it. I have so many things I do, and need time for it all. Does this sound like you? :)
Note: This is an excellent side dish. It's on the sweet side and pairs well with a light main course or could even be served as a healthy alternative as a dessert. Yum!
From my kitchen to yours,
