Stuff this..(Paleo Stuffed Acorn Squash)

Paleo Acorn Squash, yet another delicious and filling meal that’s perfect for colder weather (really, any weather). This is a meal that Stuffed-Acorn-Squash-Photo3almost everyone will love. Quite honestly,  I had never eaten an Acorn Squash until I embraced eating Paleo, now I don’t think there is a better tasting squash out there. Acorn squash is typically green. New varieties are white (Table Queen) or a pumpkin color (Golden Acorn). All varieties have a firm yellow-orange flesh. How to select: Choose a squash with a smooth, dry rind with no cracks or soft spots. The squash should have a dull rind. A shiny rind means it was picked too early and will not have full sweetness. Select a squash with as much green on the rind as possible. Too much orange means the squash is over ripe and it will be dry and stringy.
