Autumn is a time of change. The leaves turn different colors and fall transitions into winter. That's why it's also a great time to diversify your evening meals. And a personal chef from Colonial Domestic can help you do that.
Here are three autumn-themed meals you'll love:
1. Fall vegetable fajita
Add a little Mexican flare to your fall by cooking up healthy vegetable fajitas. For those who aren't familiar, a fajita is a dish consisting of spicy beef or chicken, grated cheese and sliced vegetables. Then, wrap it in a soft tortilla. To try something a little different, try soaking the meat and seasonal vegetables in a chili-lime hot sauce.
2. Butternut squash
Why wait until Thanksgiving to enjoy this popular dish? Welcome in fall by trying butternut squash, with a combination of rosemary, cheese and whipped cream. It's perfect for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
The idea behind this dish is simple: forgo using a little cheese and add butternut squash instead. You'll not only enjoy the meal's taste, but also be pleased that it's rich with fiber and vitamin A and is low-calorie.
3. Roasted spaghetti squash
Instead of purchasing traditional spaghetti, use spaghetti squash. Not only does it taste great, it's low in calories and rich in antioxidants. Add some meatballs into this Italian dish and you'll feel like you're eating at a true Italian restaurant, except without all the fat. Typically pasta dishes at Italian restaurants contain roughly 1,000 calories and 36 grams of fat.
