Eating seasonal vegetables gets harder as you progress through the fall and winter seasons. The variety gets a little more sparse, but we do have all these wonderfully starchy vegetables that are just so deliciously versatile. The butternut squash is one of my personal favorites.

This classic middle eastern dip is low in carbs, keto-friendly, and is one of my go-to’s when I’m hungry and trying to lose weight. It’s a great alternative to hummus for those who are carb conscious. At the tail end of the eggplant season, I
