Chicken Breast + Butternut Squash : Paleo

It is the middle of October which means fall is in full swing. The best part about all is the AMAZING healthy food options that become available. Namely, butternut squash. I wait all year long for butternut squash to come into season. Not only is it incredibly heart-healthy, but it is low in fat, high in potassium and has an ample dose of vitamin B6. So, chow down on this super food! Luckily, today I am bringing you a delicious way to incorporate it into your meals this fall!
