Tickle your brain as well as your tastebuds with some nutritional factoids to help you improve your health knowledge:
Butternut squash (or BNS) is a healthier alternative to white potato because it’s lower in carbs and higher in nutrients, especially fibre.
Remember, the goodness is always in the colour and in this case the orange colour is strengthening bones, producing wrinkle-preventing collagen, protecting your eye health and reducing your risk of Alzheimers.
BNS is a slow carb, delivering steady energy to fuel your day. Slice thinly (about 5mm) and roast at 180C for 45 mins with a little coconut oil. The edges will be crunchy and sweet, the middle soft and delicious. Eat hot or cold.
