Ingredients:

9 Eggs
1 cup Baby Arugula or Baby Kale
2 cups cubed Butternut squash, or winter squash of your choice
1-2 Tbsp. Olive or Avocado Oil
1 Tbsp. Coconut Milk
Salt and Pepper

 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the butternut squash with oil, salt and pepper. Line a sheet pan with parchment and arrange the cubed squash in a single layer on the pan. Roast for 30-40 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Set it aside and allow it to cool.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and coconut milk together. Add in the cubed squash and greens. Add a good pinch of salt and pepper and mix together.

Grease an 8 or 9 inch baking pan with butter or oil. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Bake for 25-35 minutes (depending on size of pan). The egg should be fully cooked and just set in the center. Allow the dish to cool slightly before slicing and enjoying.

I’ve noticed a rise in a lot of media outlets talking about “beating the bloat.” I also see it in my practice at Nourishing Lab. I often wonder, are more people actually feeling bloated, or are they just more comfortable talking about it than they were before?
