A Vegetarian Main for Skeptics
Squash as an entrée? Believe it. This hearty recipe from Clean Protein, shared by Dan Buettner, who's known for his research of the places in the world where people live the longest, healthiest lives (aka "Blue Zones"), will convince you. Buettner halves the squash, roasts it until tender and then fills it with a mixture of green onions, celery, cranberries, nuts, dried apricots, sage, rice, quinoa and orange juice. Accompanied by a large green salad, this meal covers all your bases: fruit, vegetable, grain, fiber, greens, protein and complex carbohydrates.
