Chia by itself doesn’t have a particular taste, it is pretty much neutral in taste but it does have a very interesting nutty texture to it.

While roasting, butternut squash becomes softer and makes it easy to get the pulp off the shell while absorbing all the nutrients from it. While on the topic of nutrients, it is a great winter vegetable and it is …
