About seven years ago my fiance, at the time, and I decided to cut all complex carbohydrates out of our normal diet in the evening hours. Our cut off time was around 4 pm which meant no more breads, pasta, potatoes or rice with dinner. This was hard at first but after you get into the swing of it you realize that your body processes food much more efficiently at night and you actually feel leaner the next morning, as long as you are getting enough protein and simple carbohydrates i.e. veggies. It also makes you crave more vegetables to feel satisfied at the end of your meal which in my mind is a huge bonus because I think we all know we never get enough veggies in our daily consumption.
Two of the best and my favorite recipes for spaghetti squash are:
- Red Snapper Fillet with Spaghetti Squash, Saffron, and Tomato Cream by Cooking Gluten Free, Karen Robinson. This recipe takes a little more time, serves 6 and is well worth it!
- Spaghetti Squash Carbonara (Gluten Free) by ATX Gluten Free. This recipe is simple and delicious. My husband cooked this last night and it was awesome.
There are many more uses for spaghetti squash. This is just a start. Enjoy!
