Squash instead of noodles.

So I've been dying to try substituting noodles with squash. I am trying to eliminate eating any processed flour and I think that whole wheat noodles have an unbearable texture. I have only had spaghetti squash one other time and it was served as a delicious side dish. Well tonight I went for it and served it as spaghetti and... it's a hit. I honestly like it better than noodles and I've had a meal without white flour. My boys and husband also devoured their substitute noodles with no complaints, they even cleared their plates! As far as I'm concerned this one is a winner! :o)

Hey, sounds good! Way to go!! That's fabulous that your husband and kids liked it too....that will make it easier for you to eat healthy if they like the healthy foods too. Good job having the determination to post your before pictures and tell your story and how it made you feel. Keep up the great work!

I tried that once too and I can't remember how it turned out...something to think about for a coming meal!

That sounds yummy. I don't think many others in this house would go for it, but I might have to look into it anyway. I do a good chunk of the cooking and it wouldn't hurt them to experience new things :o)
