Roasted Summer Squash Recipe

I love making recipes like this because when people try them, they can’t believe that vegetables can taste so good.

Making veggies is a bit of a pain, I know.  That’s why I make them just twice a week, but I make a bunch that way it lasts me all week.

Remember, that eating veggies in not only full of vitamins and nutrients but it also helps you BURN CALORIES.

So eat up those veggies my friend!

And check out these health benefits for this awesome vegetable.

Health Benefits of Yellow Summer Squash:

  • High in Vitamin A, C and Magnesium.
  • High in Folate, Riboflavin and Phosphorus.
  • High in Fiber.
  • Low in Calories.

This recipe is so yummy and so easy to make.  You can also try this same recipe or strategy with zucchini and eggplant.

This was so good, I was eating it with my hands from the baking sheet.

This would be so delicious with my Pomodoro On-Pot Chicken Recipe.  Now thats one yummy and healthy meal.   You can get that recipe and tons other healthy recipes on My Pinterest Boards.  Make sure to “Follow All” so you don’t miss any of my recipes or workouts.
