Roasted balsamic pumpkin

An easy lunch or dinner go-to! 2 minutes of prep...40 minutes of baking & you've got yourself a delicious wholefood meal! Eating wholefood doesn't have to be complicated.. sometimes a big of balsamic, pumpkin, nuts & goats cheese is all you need! Packed with flavour from the balsamic & pumpkin + those fatty acids in the nuts will keep you fuller for longer. This is my weekend lunch most weekends & I crave it every week.
