Moroccan Chicken with Kale and Roasted Squash

Moroccan Chicken with Kale & Roasted Squash

Fall is a fabulous season for so many reasons and one of the best ways to embrace this special time of year is to enjoy seasonal vegetables like delicious local acorn squash! Acorn squash is packed with nutrients. One serving or one cup of acorn squash contains 145% of the daily recommended requirements for Vitamin A. It also contains vitamin C, potassium, manganese, folate (folic acid), and 15% of the omega three fatty acids necessary for good health. What I like best about the recipe posted here from http://www.realsimple.com is that not only does it incorporate the use of delicious (and nutritious) acorn squash but it packs a double healthy punch with the addition of kale. One cup of chopped kale contains a mere 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and a whopping 684% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Add in skinless, boneless chicken breasts and you have a nutritional powerhouse of a meal to enjoy this Fall! Bon Appetite!
