Hello my name is Maria and I can't stop with all the squash love! We only get pumpkins once a year so I'm taking advantage of this to create all the fun recipes I want before this beautiful season is over.
One things that I mention quite a lot in my Instagram (I you are not following me already, go follow for more tips and food ideas), is to eat seasonally. Every season produce changes at there are some benefits of eating this kind of way:
- Produce is usually on sale
- Produce is more fresh so you get higher amounts of nutrients
- Key nutrients that are essential for this season
For example, squashes are rich in vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B, vitamin E, folate... and the list goes one with all the variety of squashes. Mother Nature was wise enough go give us food as medicine and also to prevent any health issues. So try to keep it natural and simple, like we like to call it... whole foods since you are using all natural, no chemical added foods that can cause a difference on the nutrient profile of the food.
The season of sharing and enjoying a cozy time is starting to begin so I've got you with some of my favorite fall recipes that I'm sure you and your loved ones will love, try my:
