Butternut Spirals...Two Ways!

We've had plenty of zucchini noodles, plenty of curly sweet potato fries, and a lot of sliced fruit for drying. Thanks to the spiralizer of course. What we haven't had enough of is the thicky thick spiralized butternut squash "noodles". One dish with our favorite Kale Garden Fusion and one with bacon, kale, and cranberries. Both are fabulous. Both are simple. And both are quick. Both require the spiralizer, so don't forget to get yourself one! It's $30-35 well spent.

Spiralized Butternut Squash With Bacon, Kale, & Cranberries
1 large butternut squash
2-3 pieces bacon
1/2 tsp garlic
1 C chopped kale
1/4 C dried cranberries
Himalayan sea salt, to taste

Peel the tough outside of the butternut squash. Use your spiralizer and the piece that makes wide spirals (the one for drying apples, just don't cut the butternut squash). Place off to the side. Cook your bacon on a large pan and leave the grease in pan. Then add your garlic and saute until fragrant. Add your butternut squash spirals (break them into pieces that aren't too long to eat as you add them to the pan). Cook until soft. Add your kale & sea salt to spirals, then cook until done. Remove from heat, add cranberries. Serve warm and with whatever your heart desires. Thoroughly enjoy!


Spiralized Butternut Squash With Thai Kale Garden Fusion
1 large butternut squash
1 table spoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons Thai KGF spice
Himalayan sea salt, to taste

Peel the tough outside of the butternut squash. Use your spiralizer and the piece that makes wide spirals (the one for drying apples, just don't cut the butternut squash). Melt coconut oil on a large pan. Add your butternut squash spirals (break them into pieces that aren't too long to eat as you add them to the pan). Cook until soft. Sprinkle your Thai kale spices & salt onto spirals and mix into spirals. Serve warm with your slab of meat or piece of chicken. Whatever you want.


Something about odd-shaped noodles are fun. The flavor is simple and tasty. And the meal
prep is nothing. And by nothing, I mean way too stupid easy. But now you have a few things to buy...


Well, welcome back you weekday workers. Have a wonderful Monday! Be sure to donate a little this week (weekly giving #3 to be posted in the next couple days), get a spiralizer, and some Kale Garden Fusions. You'll be set for Christmas...or maybe you'll just be set because you kept all the above gifts. I'm not here to judge nor do I care if you keep it all to yourself or give it up as a gift. 

We just hope you enjoy!
