Feel Full and Eat Less
Butternut squash, spinach and onions are all a good source of dietary fiber, which is a key player in feeding good bacteria in the gut and promoting weight loss. A number of studies have shown an inverse association between a higher fiber intake and body weight. So add these veggies to your brunch and get some serious fiber-bang for a healthy weight and gut!
Say Yes to a Youthful Glow
Butternut squash is a rich source of the antioxidant Vitamin C and studies show that a higher intake of this vitamin is associated with anti-aging skin–no botox needed!
Cheers to 2017!
