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.
