Sometimes you are just craving some spaghetti and maybe you are craving chow mein at the same , maybe not? Anyways, I wasn’t craving the two of those at the same time either BUT I was craving some noodly goodness. There is one problem though, I do not like noodles. Call me weird, laugh, cry, I just don’t. Probably due to the fact that I can’t have wheat and GF noodles are just eh. Call me a drama queen but we only have 3 meals in a day & I am not about to waste one on refined noodles!
All was well when I discover spaghetti squash and its nutrient dense goodness. They are low in calories and rich in nutrients. People who live a low-carb lifestyle are also super fans of this squash. Almost every essential vitamin is found in spaghetti squash but you’ll get lots of B vitamins and vitamin C. This seasonal squash is perfect for winter stir-drys or summer squash bowls. You can freeze it, chop it and blend it!
