Paleo Butternut Squash Recipe

My Paleo Dinner Formula is: a meat (or eggs) + a green veggie + a starchy veggie (or sometimes fruit) = dinner. 

When I think that way it makes it so much easier for me to put meals together. The green veggie is usually a salad, collard greens, broccoli, kale, asparagus, or Brussels sprouts. The starchy veggie is often something like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, or squash.

Paleo Tip: Keep frozen greens and vegetables, like diced butternut squash, in your freezer. They won’t go bad in your vegetable draw and you will always have an easy Paleo side dish at the ready!

When it comes to side dishes I like to keep them super easy, especially for weeknight meals. One of my family’s favorites is this Paleo Butternut Squash dish. I can whip it up in a snap, I almost always have these ingredients on-hand, and it’s absolutely delicious!

Paleo Butternut Squash
2-12 oz. bags of frozen organic butternut squash
2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup (optional)
¼ Cup water

Add coconut oil to your saucepan over medium heat. When the coconut oil is just melted, add the remaining ingredients and stir well. 

Cover and stir often until heated through.
