HOW TO || Roast Kambocha Squash: your 20 minute quick side dish for less than $5. I'm about to roast these chunks of Kambocha Squash. Here's how to make it tonight: . Step 1: Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. . Step 2: Cut the squash into quarters and then cut those pieces into quarters again so it looks like thickly cut watermelon wedges. . Step 3: Place the pieces of squash on the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with 1 Tbsp. avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper, to taste. Use your hands to rub in the oil, salt and pepper to ensure all the squash "flesh" is coated. . Step 4: Roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until the squash is tender. . Step 5: Remove from the oven, set aside for 5 minutes to cool and serve by removing the skin. Enjoy!

QUICK RECIPE FOR YOU || Pickled Red Onions (recipe below). In my opinion, homemade condiments are where it's at. If you read my first book, Eating Clean, you know why. The Homemade Condiment Chapter is the biggest chapter in the book. . Why? . Well, when you have Candida or SIBO or Lyme or Leaky Gut or an Autoimmune Disease or any other form of inflammation in your body, your body wants AND NEEDS simple, simple, simple foods. . Here's what I mean. I could only handle steamed organic chicken and steamed zucchini for many, many years. My gut was a mess, my hormones were so imbalanced and my nervous system was shot. . So, I had to learn how to create FLAVOR without anything inflammatory that could flare me up. . Here's what I did and still do: I keep the base of my meals simple, as I do in my book and on my website, and then I ADD a lot of flavor with whole food fresh condiments without canola oil and table salt, which are both highly inflammatory. Catch my drift? . Here's an easy way to add FLAVOR to any salad, whole grain or protein. Enjoy. xx . P.S. If you DO have Candida, do not eat any form vinegar and you should avoid this. . Pickled Red Onions • 1 large red onion, sliced • 1 cup unfiltered apple cider vinegar (I use Braggs) • 1 Tbsp. honey • 4 tsp. sea salt • 1 1/2 tsp. Black peppercorns . Place onions in a large mason jar. . Stir the vinegar, honey, s/p in a small pot; bring to a boil and pour over the onions. Let sit for 4 hours on the counter then put the lid on and transfer to fridge to store before eating. . These will stay good for up to 2 weeks sealed in your fridge.
