Further Food Commentary:

Cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg together create more than warm flavors, they promote anti-inflammatory protection and provide antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Onions also support anti-inflammatory actions and have been shown to lower risk of several cancers when consumed daily. As the star of this recipe, butternut squash is packed with beta-carotene, the precursor to vitamin A. It’s very important for not just eye health, but also for healthy skin and a strong immune system!
