Don't herb your enthusiasm for this tasty fall treat! Herb-Roasted Acorn Squash is a healthy and delicious recipe that can be made with fresh local ingredients. Read on for more information on the benefits of this great dish!
Acorn squash is packed with important nutrients that promote digestive health, lower the risk of heart disease and bad cholesterol levels, and can help prevent type 2 diabetes.
Herbs such as thyme, rosemary, or sage can help prevent allergies, nasal congestion, and lower blood pressure. Herbs like these can also improve brain function and memory.
Food produced locally is more nutritious. This is because food contains the most nutrients around the time it is harvested. The longer food spends traveling, the less nutrition it contains. Less time traveling also means less exposure to harmful chemicals and less production of greenhouse gasses. What a tasteful way to decrease our carbon footprint!
