Don’t worry, we aren’t actually cooking poodles, but we are making parsnip noodles! So since zucchini noodles have been coined ‘zoodles,’ then let’s make these parsnip noodles…poodles! Butternut squash, or butternut pumpkin, is high in vitamin A (just 1 cup gives you more than 450% of your daily needs which is excellent for your skin!). It also provides vitamin C, vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6, folate, magnesium and fiber. You’re also consuming a large dose of potassium (582mg for 1 cup) which is important for muscle and nerve health along with helping to reduce your blood pressure. Pair this creamy sauce with noodles made simply from vegetables and you’re treating yourself to a delicious and nutritious meal.
