Sweet and Spicy Roasted Squash


Ingredients
6lbs Acorn Squash (we used 4- 1.5lb squash), cut in half and seeds removed
14 Dates, pitted and chopped into small pieces
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
3/4 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Chipotle Powder
1.5 tsp. Fenugreek
1.5 tsp. Sea Salt
2.5 T. Coconut Oil

Step 1: 
  1. Preheat an oven to 400°F. To a baking sheet, add 1/4 cup of water and place the squash halves cut side down. Roast until a thin knife easily pierces the squash, about 20-25 minutes (depending on size).
Step 2:
  1. While the squash is roasting, prepare the Date-Spice rub/smear:
  2. Microwave dates and 1/4c of water until warm and dates are softened. This step can also be done on a stovetop, if you do not have or use a microwave. 
  3. Once softened, mash the dates with the back of a fork until smooth. 
  4. Add remaining ingredients and combine until smooth. Season with salt, to taste. 
  5. Set aside mixture until squash is ready for the final step. 
Step 3:
  1. Remove the softened squash from the oven and distribute the date-spice mixture evenly amongst the squash halves. Spread the mixture until the squash flesh is covered. 
  2. Transfer baking sheet back to the preheated oven and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, until squash is completely cooked.   



RECIPE CREDIT: My little sister, Lauren, created this recipe a few weeks ago using spices I had on-hand. It's the perfect Fall side dish!

Paleo diet or human diet cave is one of the dietary methods that adopt the prehistoric cave man diet. Then, why cavemen are used as models for dieting? It’s really a return to the type of eating your body naturally craves and was designed for. And that’s why it works. It’s based on how we humans evolved for literally millions of years.

And takes us back to our origins. A time when nobody got fat. When we were all strong, lean and had boundless energy. And when there were no degenerative diseases.
