Super-Easy Spaghetti Squash

I have made spaghetti squash countless times and have ALWAYS had trouble cutting it.

There are a few suggestions about putting the squash in the microwave to soften it up for cutting, but I wanted to roast mine completely. I found a great tutorial¬†here¬†and lemme tell you….it was SO much easier!!

  1. Cut the spaghetti squash into disks
  2. Discard seeds
  3. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and olive oil.
  4. Pop in oven for 30-50 minutes at 400 degrees.


I had a quick snowed-in meal ready in no time. I roasted the squash and then added peas, parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. AKA I hadn’t been to the grocery store and was trying to decrease the amount of frozen peas in the freezer. But hey, peas have protein them!! My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed this easy and filling meal.

Try it out!


Smoothie fail.

Today has been glorious. An unexpected snow day along with taking practice tests for the RD exam has left me feeling both relaxed and stressed to the max.

Can anyone relate?

Avocado toast is one of my favorite things on earth….along with anything else with avocado in it. Well, until today. I thought I would experiment and try an avocado smoothie. It looked and tasted like DIRT. I tried all that I could to save it; honey, peanut butter powder, banana…but it wasn’t getting any better

I would share the recipe but…you don’t want it.
