3 Clean Eating Herb Baked Butternut Squash

Although I miss the yummy fruits of spring and summer, I always enjoy the change in our meals to incorporate winter fruits and vegetables! 
Butternut squash is one of those fun winter vegetables that you can do so much with! 
(Just do a Pinterest search for butternut squash recipes and you will see all of the options! It is incredible
I recently started following The Gracious Pantry and tried her take on baked butternut squash! 
Not only was it healthy, the squash was flavorful and delicious! 
Clean Eating Herb Baked Butternut Squash 
1 butternut squash 
Olive oil
Garlic powder
Onion Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut the squash in half. Clean out the seeds, peel and slice to chunks. Put chunks in a bowl and then sprinkle herbs and spices on top. Using your hand, toss the squash so that each piece is covered with herbs. Spray Pam or pour some olive oil on a cookie sheet. Dump the squash onto the cookie sheet and spread out until the squash is in a single layer. Bake at 350 until soft (around 30 minutes.)
