Fall Produce With Hidden Healing Powers



Butternut Squash is a beauty booster

One of the most common winter squashes, butternut is a deliciously sweet, nutty veggie that has come to embody the fall harvest season. The vibrant orange flesh delivers a superior dose of the antioxidant beta-carotene along with its sister compounds, alpha-carotene and lutein. These carotenoids promote sharp vision and glowing, youthful skin. Add butternut squash puree to mac and cheese for a blast of nutrient-rich produce, or try my cozy recipe for creamy Butternut Squash Soup.
