Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash soup is definitely a Be Strong fave! It’s really simple to make and so delicious on a cold winters day! I love the rich sweetness of butternut squash, and coupled with red pepper and ginger in this recipe, it makes for a delicious sweet warm flavour.

Butternut squash is packed full of Vitamin A (given its bright yellowy-orange flesh), which helps keeps our eyes healthy, and also contains more potassium than your average banana, helping to keep the fluid in our cells in balance, which helps to regulate our blood pressure.

This recipe came from our member Suzanne, who is loving her new healthy eating plan, and reaping the rewards of increasing her exercise and eating more nutritious foods.
