Spaghetti Squash Pasta

We are all trying to eat healthier whether it is counting carbs or counting calories. Everyone has their own ways of getting in better shape and eating healthy. I know sometimes it’s very difficult to chose veggies over a juicy burger, but eating healthy can taste good! For example, I love pasta but all of those carbs aren’t doing anything special for me so I have switched to using spaghetti squash instead of pasta noodles.

Now, not only do I decrease the amount of carbs that I am eating but I’m also adding a veggie that has Vitamin C, B6 and manganese it in. I would much rather put these good nutrients into my body instead of ’empty’ carbs. Since it is summertime and its gets into the high 90’s in FL I like to keep my lunches light. I don’t typically add any sauce to my lunch and I like an assortment of veggies in there for taste so I came up with this delicious recipe! It’s easy to make and has so many yummy flavors.


1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 small sweet onion; diced

Healthy Lunch

1 medium spaghetti squash

1 medium-sized sweet potato

8 to 10 sugar snap peas

4 cups fresh spinach

Garlic powder

1 tablespoon Kelapo Coconut Oil


  1. Poke your spaghetti squash all around with a fork. Place on a plate and microwave for 8 to 12 minutes.
  2. Peel sweet potato and place in a pot with boiling water.
  3. Once sweet potato starts to become soft; you can stick a fork through, remove from water and cube.
  4. Remove spaghetti squash from microwave and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Slice spaghetti squash in half and remove seeds.

My lunch was so tasty and I felt so healthy eating it. Too silly? Oh well, it was delicious and I was proud of my creation.

Some of the health benefits of this dish are low carb, gluten-free, low sodium, and medium chain-triglycerides, those healthy fats thanks to my coconut oil!
