There is an enormous bounty of gifts from Mother Nature to accommodate anyone looking to naturally feel great and look good as the years go by. A favorite of mine is butternut Squash. The very color of butternut squash gives you a hint of its antioxidant giving qualities for positive aging. Fruits and vegetables that are bright yellow have beta carotene. This is a master antioxidant used by the body to demolish free radicals. One of the areas that benefit from free radical scavengers is the eyes. Every aging person need to protect their vision for as long as possible to avoid costly eye surgery caused primarily by aging.

Here is my recipe for Cream of Butternut Squash Soup

Buy a small fresh butternut squash. This vegetable is readily available in the supermarket in any season but is more abundant in the fall.
