Butternut Squash Soup

September 17, 2016

My goal this month was to try one new food a week.

 

Last week it was bone broth.

 

This week it is figs. They taste is very mild and they are full of fiber. I topped my Siggi’s vanilla yogurt with chopped figs and cinnamon.

One food that I am always happy to eat is Butternut Squash Soup. It is one of my favorite comfort foods, especially during the Fall times when apples are at their peak and squash are everywhere in the grocery stores.

***Food tip: I am not a fan of peeling and chopping butternut squash since it is so hard to cut through, so I often will buy the frozen, pre-cut bags.
