When I started on my own self-love path almost 20 years ago, I was struggling with food, health and myself, and by listening to positive affirmations, I was able to shift my mindset and start creating healthy changes in my life with love. I hope you enjoy them!

This wonderful squash dish is a new favorite of mine! I usually pair burrata mozzarella with tomatoes, but it actually goes really well with lots of vegetables, especially delicata squash. If you can't find delicata squash, this will also work with roasted acorn sliced thin.

What is Delicata Squash

Delicata squash is available during fall and winter, same as other winter squashes like butternut, acorn, and pumpkin. And as the name suggests, this squash has a delicate rind or skin that is 100% edible—so no peeling is necessary!

The sweetness of the roasted squash pairs perfectly with the creamy burrata, the tart pomegranates and the crunchy pistachios. It looks and tastes super sophisticated, but with minimal ingredients and just one sheet pan for prep, it's just as perfect for your Holiday table as it is for an easy weeknight side dish ' it pairs with just about any protein!
