Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna

This month we have made Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna.  This may be different than your usual lasagna with two vegetables you likely don’t eat often, but because of the incredible benefits and wonderful flavors of this dish, we are sure this recipe will become a staple in your home.

Butternut squash is high in beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant that may help fight against free radical damage and help fend off cancer. Because beta-carotene is a fat-soluble vitamin make sure to include a small source of fat, such as canola oil or olive oil, when cooking.

Always choose whole wheat when buying pasta.  Whole wheat pasta has more protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals in their natural form than the white version of pasta. The higher fiber and protein content will help you feel fuller for a longer period of time.

We hope you enjoy this healthy take on lasagna as much as the classic recipe! We would love to hear what you think about it and how it turned out for you.

Seasonal Vegetable Frittata

Eating well is important for everyone, but it is essential for people living with, through and beyond cancer, which is why we have created a series of cooking tutorials to make cooking a fun and enjoyable experience! Each month we will be launching a new video on our various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube), so be sure to go follow us.

In our first video, we are cooking seasonal vegetable frittatas. We chose broccoli as one of the main ingredients of this dish because it is packed with folate, potassium, magnesium, and fiber. According to recent research, broccoli can help block a defective gene that is associated with tumor growth. One cup of raw broccoli will also provide 135% of the suggested Vitamin C intake for the day.
