Time to change it up and substitute your meat for some veggies — go on, we dare you!

If you’re looking to incorporate more veggies and less meat into your diet, try getting adventurous with your produce. Butternut squash is quite diverse in flavour and texture depending on how you cook and eat it, and can be a hearty replacement for meat. As a rich source of beta-carotene and vitamins A and C, squash can help keep your skin and hair healthy and give your immune system a much-needed boost during the coming winter months.
