Tonight for dinner was Steak, Butternut Squash (with heavy cream and garlic) and a Salad. Great healthy and filling meal. If you don’t eat meat, enjoy the butternut squash with some seafood or with just salad.
No offense to zucchini, but the health benefits of fall-harvest squashes, far eclipse their summer cousins.
Like all members of the gourd family (which includes pumpkin, melon, and cucumber), butternut squash is technically a fruit because it contains seeds. Cut into its pale, yellow-beige hard skin, though, and you’ll discover a vibrant flesh that’s much denser than that of its relatives.
Rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants — and succulent enough to warrant the moniker “butternut” — this graceful, hourglass-like gourd is the perfect addition to an autumn meal. (Source: http://www.wholeliving.com/134734/power-foods-butternut-squash )
