Kizingo EATS: Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Kizingo EATS: Curried Butternut Squash Soup

In our house, fall is time for apple picking, fires, spending a solid two months planning our Halloween costumes, and eating so much butternut squash that we swear we won't ever eat it again. (Until next fall rolls around, of course.)

This soup is full of Vitamin C, which can boost immune function, and lower likelihood of skin dryness and wrinkles (sweet!), Vitamin A, which is important for healthy eyesight, and potassium, which aids in regulating blood pressure.

Kizingo EATS: blueberry avocado muffins

We adore avocados around these parts. Mashed into guac, diced onto tacos or on top of scrambled eggs, smushed into taste and sprinkled with salt ... these are the more obvious ways avocados are consumed by the arm load each week.

Avocados are a power food. They are loaded with soluble and insoluble fiber which is great for healthy digestion, contain a component that has been shown to maintain cholesterol levels, and are full of healthy unsaturated fats which help keep brain cells communicating with one another.

I don't know about you, but when it's hot outside the last thing I want to do is turn on my oven! So as the temperatures warm-up, I stay on the lookout for easy to prepare meals that can be eaten cold or at room temperature. We also love salads like this because they are a great way to encourage kids to try new foods. Deconstructable and flexible meals make taste-testing easier, and help kids learn to try new things without needing to eat a whole lot of something new.

Kizingo EATS: Pasta with Beets & Beet Greens

Are you making your weekend grocery list? Looking for a super easy meal to wow your weekend guests, or just get from stove to table in no time. Look no further! 

The star of this recipe: beets.

Yes. Beets.

Before you groan and click "back", hear me out.  Beets are incredible. They may not be as accessible as the carrot, exotic as the artichoke, or beautifully curvy as the eggplant, but beets have fabulous flavor and pack a nutritional punch (they are an excellent source of folate, manganese, potassium and fiber).
