Rev Up The Afternoon Blahs With Squash

Did you know that the sweet flavor and satisfying texture of winter squash can keep you from getting fatigue, light-headed and cranky? Plus they keep you full for a long time. My favorite is butternut squash.

Butternut squash helps boost the body's ability to convert stored fat into energy, thanks to its stores of omega-3 fatty acids.

My favorite lazy-day recipe is:
Cut the butternut squash in half
Place cut side down on a baking dish
Coat with olive oil

Roast at 400F

Top with a few think slivers of butter and a little salt for a perfect side dish.
