Normally I’m not a spaghetti squash fan but this was really delicious!
Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti
- 1 Spaghetti squash
- 1lb lean ground beef 93/7
- 1 32oz jar of spaghetti sauce
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
- Mozzarella to top
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Half spaghetti squash, clean out, pour water into squash until it’s about half way full bake 1 hour. Remove and shred with fork. Place in strainer to drain excess water.
*Cook meat sauce about 15 mins before your squash is done baking. Cook meat along with minced garlic and mushrooms, drain grease and add sauce and let simmer. Pour into spaghetti squash, stir, serve and top with mozzarella!
🔹This would also be fantastic with diced zucchini and onions in it!

I was browsing Pinterest today (one of my favorite sites) and I came across this low carb, gluten free Hot Pocket Recipe, it looked great and I just HAD to share it! This fabulous recipe comes from The Iron You and I’ve spent just a few minutes on this website and there are several recipes I want to try out!
I wanted a pie that wasn’t loaded with sugar and full of junk, I browsed recipes for a healthy crust but it came down to me not finding exactly what I wanted and I didn’t want to use artificial sweeteners or sugar in my recipe. SO, I threw all of this together in hopes that it would taste good and it was fantastic! I am learning through my baking and cooking adventures that honey replaces sugar very well and I don’t miss it at all or the nasty headache that comes from a sugar overload, yuck! Oh and almond flour is the next best thing- I don’t miss using regular flour either! Now on to the recipe….
Fruit Coconut Cream Pie (Gluten Free & Healthy)
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup organic honey
6 tbsp butter
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 can coconut milk
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 tbsp put vanilla extract
Drizzle of honey or sweetener of choice, taste to test.
Desired fruits, I used 2 kiwis, 1 banana and a handful of strawberries.
Preheat oven to 350°. Place all dry ingredients for the crust together, mix, then add in honey, butter, egg & vanilla stir well until dough forms. Place into baking dish bake 20-25 mins.
Cream: Place coconut milk in fridge 24 hours prior so that it is solid, pour all ingredients into mixing bowl and whip.
Allow to cool then pour cream over crust then top with top with desired fruit! Serve or store in fridge or freezer.
**NOTES: Next time I make this I am going to try 6 tbsp Coconut Oil in place of the butter and see how that works out. If you try it this way please leave me a comment with how it turns out.
