Spaghetti … squash style

You might have guessed from my post last night that my meal last night had to do with spaghetti squash. Ding, ding, ding! You would be correct.

Have you ever prepared spaghetti squash? ‘Cause you should. Even if you’re not a squash fan, like those little rounds our moms sauteed in butter on the stovetop, give this big guy a chance.

Ok, not really magically, but I kinda felt like I did as a kid when I learned how blue food coloring in a daisy’s water turns the flower blue. Part of the fun of this Arbonne 28-day clean eating challenge has been discovering new foods and cooking techniques in the kitchen.
