Market Produce – Oct 22


It’s winter squash season! Kan you say Kabocha….   This squash is bursting with nutrition, full of beta carotene, iron, vitamins A, C, fiber and some B vitamins and an anti-inflammatory food to boot.  It’s got 40 calories per cup AND less than half the carbs of most other squash.

Nothing warms you up like a curry, check out this Kale & Kaboucha Kombo recipe
