Spaghetti Squash

SO if my friends know one thing about me its how OBSESSED I am with pasta dishes. I love Pesto and pasta, Fettuccine, Marinara, pretty much every pasta dish ever. BUT the problem with this its loaded with carbs. Through Jawbone UP App and Bracelet I have learned that I need to cut down on the amount of carbs I have been eating.  I eat a lot of good carbs, and I keep my fiber apple green, but with that I eat a lot of bad carbs.

The past week I have tracked.

DATE carbohydrates in grams Percentage intake Fiber in grams Percentage intake
Sunday, March 17, 2013 182.38 140.29% 10.20 40.80%
Monday, March 18, 2013 179.04 137.72% 21.50 86.00%
Tuesday, March 19, 2013 209.90 161.46% 39.28 157.12%
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 262.91 202.24% 36.60 146.40%
Thursday, March 21, 2013 195.84 150.65% 19.30 77.20%
Friday, March 22, 2013 129.73 99.79% 25.23 100.93%
Saturday, March 23, 2013 209.43 161.10% 24.20 96.80%
Carbohydrates/Fiber Goals 130.00 25.00

Goals based on Recommended Dietary Allowances and Adequate Intakes, Total Water and Macronutrients by the USDA for Female 19-30 years old.

SO with those stats I decided to look up some low carb dinners on Tasty Kitchen. And found a recipe for Spaghetti Squash Medley… AMAZING.

If you are looking for a low carb amazing meal I would head over here and check it out. The only thing I did not like about it is Pasta Sauce is loaded with Sodium. So next time I make this I am going to try to find  a low sodium pasta sauce… 
Anyway this was my first time cooking with Spaghetti Squash and certainly is not going to be the last. This healthy meal was even boyfriend approved! A boyfriend who claims that he hates Zucchini Actually it went like this.
Me: Wow, I actually really enjoy the carrots in this meal. 
Jon: I really enjoy this thing (picks up a piece of Zucchini with his fork)
Me: Oh you mean the Zucchini? 
Jon: Damn it, wait let me try it! (tries it again) yeah. I guess its okay haha
This will happen a lot you will learn. 
How else do you cook Spaghetti Squash?

    I love spaghetti squash. I sometimes mix it with a little bit of feta cheese, goat cheese, or laughing cow cheese, chopped up cherry tomatoes, and olive oil.
    It's also really good to use some of the leftovers in a wrap with anything else you like…its a good filler in a sandwich
