Baked Salmon & Butternut Squash

This is a great dish if you’re after something filling, balanced, and delish. Sound good?

If you’re lowering your sugar intake, root vegetables are a great addition. Root veg, like butternut squash, are filling and have a subtle sweetness which will satisfy your sugary cravings. Squash is also a great source of beta-carotene, vital when we’re not seeing much sunlight!

The fats in the salmon help you absorb the vitamins from your veggies, and keep you fuller for longer. What a combo!
