Colder days and colder nights means it’s soup season, which is actually great if you’re fighting to get back to eating healthy after the onslaught of holiday gatherings we all partake in. A good mix of them are best served warm, too, which certainly helps combat the frigid temps.

Today we’ll be sharing the recipe for one of our favorites: Butternut squash soup. It’s a great source of vitamins A & C, and also contains a notable amount of potassium. In addition to all of that, it also has a low energy density, which means it’s rich in assorted nutrients and quite low in calories. Need we say more?!
