The perfect winter side dish 🎄🍁🎉❤️

Roasted acorn squash with a balsamic honey glaze 🎉👍🏼

It sounds fancy but it’s not at all.  Cut your squash in half & scoop out seeds.  Turn the squash so the skin is up & cut skinny slices.  Lay on baking sheet & lightly coat with avocado or coconut oil & salt.  Bake for 45-55 min at 400 deg.  About 20 minutes before squash is done take a small sauce pan and melt some honey, balsamic vinegar & salt.  Whisk until it thickens.  Once squash is done put it onto a plate & drizzle the glaze on top.  Eat it in a similar way you would ribs 😍

Ingredients:

1 acorn squash

Avocado or coconut oil

Salt

Honey 

Balsamic vinegar 

ENJOY!!!

A NEW Brussels Sprouts Recipe – BACON!!!

This makes for an AWESOME side dish & great lunch leftovers.  And the best part is that it is something NEW!  Oh and that it has BACON in it 🙂  Everything is better with bacon!

Ingredients:
1.5 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil or ghee
Sea salt & pepper
4 slices of bacon, diced
Aged balsamic vinegar (malt free)

Instructions:
Preheat your oven to 400 degree’s F.  Trim the ends and any old outer leaves from the Brussels sprouts.  (don’t throw away the leaves – toss them into a container and keep in the fridge so you can make Brussels sprouts chips later).  Cut the sprouts in half & toss them with melted fat, salt & pepper.  Dump them on a foil lined baking sheet, making sure to keep everything in one layer.  Sprinkle the diced bacon over everything and pop the tray into the oven.  The sprouts take about 30-35 minutes to roast, so set your timer for 10 minute intervals to regularly rotate and flip the goods.  Once roasted, pour into a bowl, add salt (if needed) and drizzle some of the vinegar on top.  Toss & serve!!  This recipe also works with cauliflower & broccoli!!!
