Roasted Butternut Squash

Squash can be sexy!

“Squash is a great member of the curcubitae family and all, especially the seeds, contain high levels of citrulline. This helps our body utilize arginine more effectively for improved blood flow and better circulation. It is often called the poor wo/man’s Viagra. When I recommend it for those I work with in my private practice (to eat more cucumbers, squash, zucchini, and pumpkin) who feel as though their sex life is diminished, they get great results!”
~ John Bagnulo
