I recently discovered the spaghetti squash – an awesome vegetable that is low in fat and calories. When cooked the squash winds up looking like noodles and tastes similar to an al dente noodle. It is slighltly crunchy and highly delicious. There are hardly any carbs in a spaghetti squash, not that I really care, but some of you may.
You will need:
1 spaghetti squash
3 Roma tomatoes
1 cup mushrooms (any kind you like)
4 cloves of garlic
3-4 pinches of oregano
2 tbsps of basil
2 tbsps of oil
1/4 cup of dry red wine
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup of water
Not included with this recipe but goes well too:
****2 sun dried tomatoes (optional)
*****ground beef or sausage (optional)
Cooking and preparation
Ingredients: 4 strawberries
1 cup blackberries
3 tbsps. Plain yogurt
½ cup dry oatmeal
1 cup soy milk or regular milk
Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend. It’s that simple. Enjoy! I was skeptical about smoothies but now I’m drinking one of these just about every morning. Stay tuned for more of my recipes – and don’t worry, I’ll even be posting some of my high-fat recipes like my world famous stuffed cabbage.
