6 comforting winter squash recipes

Hi everyone!

Thanks for reading my last post on pursuing perfect and for understanding that sometimes life, and blogging schedules aren't perfect. The weather is finally cooling down and in my opinion, it is the best time to get in the kitchen. Chilly weather means more nights at home and cozy, comforting foods. Since I am more inspired to get in the kitchen in the fall I thought I would share some recipes! This week, I have a round up of six different recipes using winter squash from some awesome dietitians. I challenge you to pick a recipe that uses a squash you have never cooked with before and give it a try! 

If winter squash intimidates you, turn to YouTube for some info and how-to's for cutting and cooking tricks and tips.

So much fall goodness jam packed in this chili. PS - it uses canned pumpkin, so if you're not ready to roast one yourself this recipe is a great pick! 


spiced butternut squash and leek soup | Eat real live well

I may be biased, but I am obsessed with beets! This recipe uses lots of seasonal produce, and beet chips are the ultimate addition.
