List of healthy fall/winter foods

Jessica - posted on 10/08/2012 ( 6 moms have responded )




I wanted to create a list of some healthy fall/winter food ideas. I just came up with this super yummy acorn squash soup recipe and found an easy recipe for some crusty french bread. I know this will last us a few days but wanted to see if anyone else had any other favorite healthy fall/winter foods.

I was given this recipe to soften hubbard squash, but with acorns quashes you get individual servings. Cut the squash in half, scrape out the seeds and strings, fill the cavity with bulk sausage, and bake until the squash is soft and the sausage is done through (1-2 hours depending on size). Eat it right out of the squash shell or scrape out the squash, break up the sausage and mix them together.

Thinly slice enough apples to cover the bottom of your roasting pan. Place a pork roast on top of them. Drizzle on a glaze of brown sugar and apple cider. Bake until roast is done through.

Chop an assortment of root vegetable (potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, radishes, turnips, carrots, parsnips...) into a cake pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and crushed rosemary. Mix well. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 1/2 an hour. Stir well. Bake uncovered for another 1/2 hour.

mmmmmm the acorn squash soup sounds AMAZING. speaking of acorn squash...I found this recipe to make acorn "onion" rings. you basically slice the acorn into onion ring shape, core the center, put on cookie sheet & drizzle with oil (on the bottom & top of the rings), sprinkle salt n pepper, and for myself i love garlic so i sprinkled garlic powder. in the oven at 350 or higher. if you want them crispier then slice them thinner and beware that you need a pretty decent knife to do this or else its a pain in the a$$ and not all that great to look forward too. and vuala! acorn..onion...rings...?...yeah! I eat them with the skin and everything, i like the crunchiness. :)

How about Luxuriously Rich, Skinny Chicken Pot Pie Italiano. This might just be the best tasting reduced-fat chicken pot pie you’ve ever tasted!!! It’s really rich in Italian flavors because I’m using a light Alfredo sauce for the base of the chicken stew. I’ve added lots of vegetables, too. The skinny for 1 serving, 355 calories, 13 grams of fat and 9 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.The entire family will love it and it’s fabulous enough for company!
