Easy Baked Acorn Squash

Here is a simple recipe for baked acorn squash that is Whole30, Paleo and well just good for you food.  It is a good source of dietary fiber and potassium, as well as smaller amounts of vitamins C and Bmagnesium, and manganese.  It is versatile as well.  You can bake it, stuff it or throw it on the bbq.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acorn_squash

Wash the outside of the squash then cut in half and scoop out the seeds.  You can save the seeds for later to plant after the first frost if you wish to grow your own. I decided to slice mine and bake them vs stuffing them this time but it is so easy to use as a side dish or main if you wish to stuff them with sausage and sage.

Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper and place slices on pan. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.  Then sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder,  Pink Gourmet Himalayan Salt, pepper and fresh or dried sage.  Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Prep Time: 15 minutes                                                               Cook Time: 30 minutes
