A Sunrise Recipe: Butternut Risotto

By MD for Seniors

This recipe, a favorite at Stratford Court of Boca Pointe, FL, is a perfect hearty yet healthy selection during brisk weather. It also makes a great alternative for Easter celebrations and is easy to prepare, even for beginners!
Butternut squash contains high levels of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that converts into vitamin A in the body to protect cells from damaging free radicals which can cause several chronic illnesses. Regular and adequate intake of beta-carotene has been known to help reduce the risk of coronary artery disease, stroke, certain cancers and macular degeneration.
