Roasted Butternut Squash

This scrumptious GAPS recipe is one of my favorite things to throw together when I need a savory side dish without a lot of thought or prep. The sweet hints of butternut squash, sage, and thyme get me hooked every time I make it and I end up eating it all week for most of my main meals, snacks, and even desserts.

It's also a perfect post-workout meal as it's rich in glucose and still delicious cold so I can throw it in a tupperware and take it to the gym with me when I know it's going to be a slow morning getting home.

Ghee also makes this a rich and healthy snack full of wonderful fatty acids that help build the body's brain and nervous system. (Check out my post about fats, to get the scoop on why real fats are so essential for you). Ghee is super easy to make at home, too, and is easily digestable rarely a problem, even for those with dairy issues.  So load it up on the ghee and enjoy a wonderful meal all week long!
