There's certain foods that I consider a staple in my diet;
This selection is determined by a series of categorical factors
Let's use Kabocha Squash for example
Factor #1: Is this food cheap? Yes, a 3lb Kabocha Squash at Walmart is $2.00-$3.00
BC fresh Kabocha Squash, "Goodness from the ground up"
A seedy inside view
Factor #2: Is it easy to prepare? Yes, prep time is under 5 minutes
and only requires a knife for cutting and a spoon for scooping seeds
Factor #3: How versatile is it? Very versatile because squash can
either be steamed, boiled, baked, or fried and always tastes delicious
Factor #4: Does it mesh well with other foods?
Yes, especially with proteins and green vegetables
Here I cut the Kabocha Squash in half and baked in the oven for 60
minutes at 385F before pairing it with Stir-Fried Vegetables and Shredded
Roast Chicken Breast, and topping with Yellow and Spicy Brown Mustards
Factor #5: Could you eat this everyday? Absolutely!
And thankfully Fall/Autumn is "Squash-Season" so
I can rest assured that there'll be plenty of it in stock
