Squashing my fear of squash

Wednesday, January 04, 2012


I have been a carb and sugar junkie for at least 40 years.
Growing up on Captain Crunch and Poptarts did not make for a tiny little girl.
But now that I am 45 I am begining to grow up to be a smart human.
I am learning to make choices of food that come from nature and not a factory.
Last night I cracked open my first spaghetti squash.
I took a recipe from Pinterest that I liked, followed it, and low and behold...one more vegatable I am willing to eat...no...wanting to eat! It was great!!!
I enjoyed this first one just like I would have with carb loaded pasta, with sauce and a bit of parm cheese.
Next time I am going to save the seeds and roast them to top my batch of spaghetti squash with pesto, diced tomatoes, and black olives.
I hope you try a new food this week and love it too.

    emoticon I'm low carb and don't have a problem with winter squash, as long as I eat only a bit of it at a time. No more big bowls of squash for me, I don't even want it anymore.

    emoticon Spaghetti squash is yummy. I wish my DH liked it but I think I am going to just deal with it and make him regular pasta when I have spaghetti squash. I really believe that trying new things is the key to sticking to this for the long haul.

    Have a healthy day!

    Way to go!! Trying new foods is always fun!! I love all types of squash but hubby is more limited but like you he likes spaghetti squash. Roasting the seeds is fun too - I love roasted pumpkin seeds.

    Keep branching out with your foods - it will bring you real joy in the New Year!!

    Best wishes on your journey to good health!
