Butternut Hummus.

So this just might be my new favorite fall snack and it’s a perfect appetizer for any upcoming large family gathering get-togethers this next week.

Butternut squash provides you with a good source of antioxidants, vitamins A, C & E, fiber as well as important minerals like potassium (one of three major electrolytes which assist your body in regulating muscle contractions) and magnesium.
