Two Wonderful Recipes For Butternut Squash

I figured I should top it with something, so I made a vegetarian spaghetti Bolognese type topper for one half. Then made soup out of the other!

I thought I should share these recipes with you because they were so delicious!

First put the squash in the oven at 200 degrees for about an hour or so – until its soft. I scored mine diagonally and put salt, pepper, oregano and oil on top to season it.

Protein Flapjacks!

This weekend I’ve been experimenting with some new snack ideas. I plan to join the gym after I start my job (as I’m a little short on money) and plan to try to eat right whilst doing it. I’m not going on a ‘diet’ because I hate that word but I’d like to eat more fruit and veg and eat the right things after a workout.
