Healthy Comfort Food- Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is a great food to eat in the late summer-early fall.  Substitute this unique vegetable for pasta and save calories if you’re watching your carbohydrates- while filling up on fiber and nutrients. Simply cut the squash in half (See photo center) brush with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees upside down for about 45 minutes or until tender.

Top with some marinara sauce and fresh grated Parmesan cheese. If you or someone you know just has to have meat… sauté some organic ground turkey or grass-fed beef in a little olive oil with crushed garlic and a dash of tarragon, add it to the sauce and simmer while the squash bakes. Top each squash half with sauce and grated cheese. Mhm, Mhm!

Nutritionally speaking: 1 cup of squash has 42 calories, 10 g carbohydrates and is a good source of potassium. Alison Birks, MS, AHG, CNS – Nutritionist, Holistic Health Counselor and Clinical Herbalist has great insights on staying healthy by eating healthyhttp://alisonbirks.com

We all take comfort in familiar places. I’ve re-positioned my sunflower pillows in the field across from where they grew up. The flower image I used on them was planted as a seed and grown on the south side of my house. This was the view they had every day.SunbabyDali_4256
