Spaghetti Squash Success

Today has been a pretty low key day.  Just what the doctor ordered after yesterday was so go-go-go.  No soreness or anything from racing two races yesterday!  Score!

I found out that I ran faster in the second race I ran by 10 seconds!  Completely unintentional and really surprising.  Why surprising?  Because I was definitely struggling for at least the last mile and there were quite a few hills along the way that definitely kicked my butt.  I guess my first race was a warm-up?

Today has been a pretty awesome food day!

Lunch was a grilled banana french toast sammich with an apple on the side with some PB.

It is amazing!!

Dinner was also delicious tonight!  I tried spaghetti squash for the first time!  I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.  I was in for a delicious surprise!  I had some veggie smart pasta sauce with grilled chicken in it as well as a piece of WW toast!

What do I do with a spaghetti squash?

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°
  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half length wise.  It’s definitely not easy to cut, but after looking around the internet, I was expecting impossible.  It wasn’t that bad!
  3. Clean out the seeds with a tablespoon.
  4. Place the squash (cut side DOWN) on a cookie sheet.  Place in your pre-heated oven.
  5. Cook the squash for 40 minutes (a knife should go in fairly easily when inserted).

I only cooked half the squash today.  The other half I put in a freezer storage bag and put it in the freezer.  I also only ate half of the cooked squash.  I put the leftovers in the fridge for this week!  I can’t wait to try more combinations with this new pasta!

I’ve been so productive today, I think I deserve kickboxing and yoga tonight!!
