A strange thing happened yesterday.
I sent an email out to the wonderful group of women in the Return to Nourishment forum asking “what’s for dinner?”
The response? Acorn Squash.
Seriously. All but one of us in the group had acorn squash for dinner, and the one who didn’t had acorn squash in her garden waiting to be picked for future dinners.
Coincidence? Maybe– acorn squash (along with other winter squashes) is in season right now. BUT I like to think it’s because we’re all connected on a higher level.
Winter squashes are really high in antioxidants like carotenoids. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and they can help regulate blood sugar. So winter squashes, like acorn, butternut and kabocha, are perfect for a fall cleanse.
What is your favorite winter squash?
I think mine’s butternut, but this acorn was a pretty close second…
