Smooth, sweet, and rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants, this succulent combination is the perfect addition to any meal. Butternut squash and pumpkins are abundant in nutrients known as carotenoids, which are amazingly beneficial for overall cardiovascular health. Cauliflower has a mild flavor and is an excellent source of vitamin C, K, folate, and fiber.
