My speghetti squash LOVE

Let me tell you. I.love.spaghetti,squash!!!
I could probably eat it all day, everyday.
I make it alot for dinner ( probably more than adam would like) and I usually prepare it the same way everytime- cooked squash, with an organic tomatoe basil sauce, and sauteed mushrooms... boring? Yes. Easy? Yes. Tasty? Well yeah!
But today I decided to experiment a little. I switched up my spaghetti squash regime! Im usually pretty fearful to try new recipes, because im scared to death that Adam will hate it and think im a bad wife... He always says he loves everything I cook, but I still think the day will come where I try something out of the ordinary, and he will be sick to his stomach for the rest of the night, and suddenly I am no longer a domestic wife... irrational fear I know.
Anyways, my dinner went a little like this.

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup vegetable broth (made from scratch)
1 ear of corn (kernels cut from the cob)
1 whole spaghetti squash
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste

OK, im all about easy, quick meals. this is both those things. The squash takes about an hour to cook, but you dont have to watch it, and it takes like 27 seconds to prepare.
So, I tried a new, super healthy recipe, and Adam loved it!! yay! Im always so happy when he legitimately likes my cooking :)

Iv been doing really good at eating healthy. Iv always been a fairly healthy person, but I think im doing really well right now. Im considering going 80% raw, but I have to look a little more into it because im still breastfeeding and I need to make sure I'll be getting enough calories. My brother in law is a health NUT and such an inspiration. He leads a raw food lifestyle and loves it so much. Ill be hittin him up for tips very shortly. Ill stay posted about how the raw diet goes or doesn't go...
Oh cheat! I had a 7-11 slurpee today and it was heavenly.

  2. My husband actually eats really healthy and totally encourages it. We eat the exact same pretty much. We both dont eat meat, and like a lot of fresh food. it makes cooking so much faster and easier to prepare. i know most guys totally love meat and whatnot, and i dont think meat is bad for you, i just choose not to eat it. But I have some meals i could send you that are really yummy, and mostly vegetarian, but you can add any kind of meat to them im sure if you wanted to.

  3. that would be fabulous! my husband is quite fairly healthy, so i'm quite lucky. he just has a hard time trying new things. but he's been so good! he never had asparagus before and loves it now! that would be great if you could send a few recipes if you get a chance! vanessalynn4@gmail.com
