Nutrition Spotlight

Harvest Veggie Spotlight: Squash
Take advantage of the fall harvest season and try some new recipes with butternut squash! Butternut squash are medium sized, shaped like a peanut with bright orange flesh on the inside. They are a great source of fiber and vitamin A.
Half the squash, drizzle the tops with olive oil and add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Roast the squash in the oven until soft and discover the culinary possibilities! Blend it with chicken stock to make a hearty fall soup, mash it up and add to muffins or oatmeal, or simply enjoy as a side dish of vegetables with chicken or fish.
Bon Appetit!

An Apple a Day!
It’s apple picking season! Apples are an easy on-the- go snack, full of fiber and a perfect fit for a lunchbox. An apple makes for a healthy snack all on its own, but here are some ideas to balance and increase protein intake:
Pair apple slices with:
• Cheddar or cottage cheese
• Plain yogurt
• Hummus
