Spaghetti is one of those 11 meals we eat over and over again. Eating meat and vegetables can appear overwhelming, but it’s quite simple to make spaghetti squash spaghetti. It’s nutritious and filling, and your family will start to ask for it on a regular basis.
According to Nutrition Data via Self Magazine spaghetti squash is low in Saturated Fat and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber and Vitamin C (so when you tell people you don’t eat grains and they look at you appalled because you must be constipated, you can tell them not to worry because you eat your vegetables). They also state that spaghetti squash is “filling and nutritious;” the graph below indicates where certain foods fall when it comes to filling your belly up with quality foods. All the things I eat are on the top right with the Spaghetti squash.
I’m just going to point out that grains and dairy don’t exist on the descriptions of the graph. I’m sure you can put them somewhere, but they aren’t listed in the filling and nutritious section.
