SO cool to find a veggie that resembles pasta! HOW cool is that. GOD outdid himself on that one! LOL
THE picture above is 1 cup of spaghetti squash, 1/2 cup of 100% Natural Chunky Ragu Roasted Red Pepper and Onion sauce, 3 ozs. 93% lean ground beef.
1/2 cup has 80 calories, Fat 2.5, Sodium 500, Carbs 13, Fiber 2, Sugars 10, Protein 2.
Sugar is listed as # 6 in the ingredients so allowed on my eating plan. We are allowed Spaghetti sauce as a condiment with our lunch and dinner meals. ALL the ingredients by the way are natural.... so this sauce tastes so fresh! I love that!
The corn and black bean medley is by FLAV-R-PAC called Santa Fe Medley Steam of the Crop. It has Corn, Black Beans, Onions, Red and Green Peppers.
That is 1/2 cup on the plate but the bag shows 2/3 cup has 90 cal. Fat 1, Sodium, 80, Carbs 15, Fiber 6, Sugars 4, Protein 5. The sugars are natural... there are NO sugars added. Just veggies and beans only!
The other food is spinach lettuce and tomato and ranch dressing. That was 2 tb. measured on the dressing but it was too much to my tastes! LOL
Mary Ann (SHANTISHANTI) told me how to fix the spaghetti squash.. so here is what I did:
Cut the squash in 1/2 (IT is hard as a rock! LOL)
Scoop out the seeds and puncture it with a skewer. I used my pecan picker thing to pick nuts out of the shell.
Place it face down in a pyrex dish. I added a touch of water to the top of the squash before I place it in the dish.
Microwave it til soft, not mushy... so just keep checking it with a fork.
Here is is finished:
Isn't that the coolest thing...that is is like spaghetti noodles. God is amazing. I am in AWE of this! (smiling) My husband liked it BETTER than pasta! I did too!
When I fixed the beef for this I also went ahead and made a dish of pasta shells and sauce and mozerella for the kids. Here is a picture of that:
They had salad and garlic bread with theirs.
Neither kid would try the squash! OH well their loss! LOL
Here is a comparison picture below of me.
I still have a ways to go with my hips as you can see... but exercise should help firm that up! Too many years of sitting on my butt at my office job. I call it Secretary's butt! I don't work in an office anymore.. but the butt stayed with me! LOL
I just need to walk and work out... and that is what I am going to do!
There is a difference of 25 lbs in this picture.
The one on the right was taken yesterday... I think I have my lunch on my shirt LOL
Stay the course sparkers! I am rootin' for you!
Thanks for reading my blogs!
