11/18/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 19. November 2013 14:13

Clean eating encourages you to eat seasonal vegetables to get the best flavor.  Think of the taste difference in strawberries and grapefruits when eaten ‘in season’ vs. ‘off season’.  It’s no contest.

During the fall and early winter some super seasonal stars (say that three times fast) are pumpkin, sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, acorn and butternut squash and kale.

The other night I slow roasted butternut squash with 1 tbls. garlic minced, and an onion in a roasting pan.  I cooked at 275 degrees for 4 hours.  Then I put it in a blender and pulse it.  You can also use a blender wand to get the job done.  You can blend it to your desired consistency.  I put the blended squash mixture into an oven-safe dish, spray top with butter-flavored spray (or put this slice pats of no-salt added butter), and sprinkle shaved parmesan on top.  Broil till cheese browns.  It was yummy!  You could even change the flavors by adding some ground cinnamon or curry powder.  The possibilities are endless.  Manga!
