With the sudden drop in temperature and a sudden increase in my cravings
for warm comfort foods, it definitely feels like the beginning of November
For example, the colder it gets the more my Roasted
Squash Bowls look more like this and less like this
1/2 large Kabocha Squash/Japanese Pumpkin
roasted in a 400 Fahrenheit oven for 1 hour
Stuffed with Stir-Fried Beet Greens, Spinach, Green
Beans, Kale, Onion, Edamame and Organic Lean Beef
And liberally coated with a variety of Brown, Yellow and Dijon Mustards
And for those of you who have yet to try Roasted Kabocha
Squash, I can't stress enough how much you need to get on that!
Once you try it, you will be thanking me :)
Although I don't need anymore stevia since my last package arrived,
I found a new company/product at the store and had to test it out
ORGANIC Lifestyle Sweet & Natural Stevia Packets
"1 packet provides the sweetness of 2 teaspoons of sugar"
It's true, stevia is incredibly sweet! I use it all the time,
and if you were to check inside my bag, you'd find a lofty
stash I carry with me for whenever I grab a tea or coffee
"It's made with rebiana, the best tasting part of the stevia leaf"
Zero Calories, Fats, Sodium and Carbohydrates, with 1 gram of Fibre
A lot of people complain about it tasting bitter, but that bitterness quickly
dissipates when dissolved into food or water (unless consumed raw)
I found this particular flavour, "Natural", to be really
bland. I regret not buying the "Caramel Delicioso" flavour!
Diabetes Friendly :)
Now all I need is a piping hot mug of tea!
