Saladmenu Butternut Squash Fries

I fell in love with squash this year. Other than Thanksgiving decor, I really didn’t know much about them. After rolling through the grocery store I spotted a corner full of colorful winter squash and picked one up, without knowing what it really was. I loved the sweet taste of the squash, I was seriously missing out of all the goodness this vegetable has.

Benefits of adding Butternut Squash

Different varieties of squash have the ability to improve your sight, boost skin health, boost the immune system, prevent cancer, protect heart, prevent the inflammatory condition, boosts respiratory health and treat arthritis. Specifically, butternut squash (which happens to be my favorite from all) is a great source of vitamin A, and we know vitamin A is important for our vision, bone growth and reproduction system. What was I thinking of passing right by these nutritious vegetables! Squash is great for soups, and salads but also for something simple as homemade fries!
