This is a delicious, seasonal recipe perfect for you as the weather changes. It is a wonderful food to eat if you are dealing with sweet cravings since the squash and sweet potato are naturally sweet and will satisfy your body’s taste needs without breaking your sugar bank. If you are feeling flighty, stressed or too in your head, another benefit is the grounding effect of root veggies like the seasonal squashes that you can find everywhere right now. The shallots are like nature’s antibiotic so eat up during this time of year when everyone is getting sick!
