Roasted Acorn Squash with Dates, Pumpkin Seeds and Goat Cheese | DeliciouslyOrganic.net (grain free, paleo)

I love coaxing the full flavor out of vegetables by roasting them. Throughout the fall and winter, I roast various kinds of squashes, then toss with herbs, nuts, seeds, dried fruits and cheeses. What a simple way to create a complex, nuanced dish!

Pumpkin Seeds Small
Every few months I purchase nuts and seeds, soak them in water and sea salt (to reduce enzyme inhibitors), and dehydrate them until they’re crispy. I store them in glass jars and use them in salads, sprinkle them over vegetable dishes or just snack on them. I know it’s only October, but you can start your holiday preparation early with a simple step like this.

Speaking of the holidays, now is the time to order an organic whole turkey! We’ve enjoyed a pastured turkey at our Thanksgiving table for many years and I can’t even describe the wonderful taste. We eat the meat from the turkey for a couple of days and then I use the carcass to make turkey stock. Then I use the stock to make Loaded Baked Potato Soup – a family holiday-season favorite in our house.

In past years, I learned the hard way that these birds go very quickly, so don’t delay! Tendergrass Farms sells a lovely pastured, organic whole turkey and they’ve offered to give one away to a lucky reader. See the widget below to enter. Good luck!

In 2008 I suddenly became very sick, and for nine months, I couldn’t find a doctor who would really listen or run any tests. They most often told me I had dry skin, handed me a tube of steroid cream and moved on to the next patient. I had hives
