As part of the AFL Players’ TeamUp 20 Day Challenge we’ve asked former player and founder of Dineamic Jason Johnson to provide a few recipes to help ensure you are eating healthy while getting active over the 20 days.
An old classic with a twist – the honey in this recipe gives it a bit of extra sweetness and brings out the pumpkin’s natural flavour. All Dineamic meals are healthy and easy to cook, but it’s hard to think of one much easier than this one. Best of all, it’s something you can eat at any time, whether it be as a snack throughout the day, an entrée, or for lunch or dinner.

1 butternut pumpkin (about l kg), peeled, diced
