Spaghetti Squash with Asparagus, Mushrooms, and Feta

Posted by Sarah Alvarado on Sep 13, 2017 9:47:47 PM

When deciding what to make for dinner, I first check out what’s in my fridge. Anything can be made with the combination of a few veggies. Today I had a spaghetti squash, a bunch of fresh asparagus and mushrooms. I like to keep it quick and simple, so by adding a few of the basics: fruity olive oil, zesty lemon juice, herbs, salt, pepper, I can already tell this will be a winner!

I served this dish with a side of fresh spring mix salad, tossed in a light vinaigrette.

The trick to staying in ketosis is not only to avoid all obvious sources of carbohydrate, but also to be careful with your protein intake. If you eat large amounts of meat, eggs and the like, the excess protein will be converted into glucose in the body.  This compromises optimal ketosis.

Banana Mango Ice Cream

Ice cream for breakfast? Why not! 

My little girl squeals with excitement if I say the word “ice cream”. Ok, my husband does as well. He’s a recovering ice cream-oholic! 

Believe it or not, my daughter has only had “real” ice cream maybe three times in her short life…Hawaii, Cancun, and on a cruise. I have never had store-bought ice cream enter our kitchen because this is an easy and HEALTHY way to make ice cream. In fact, kids will enjoy making it with you as much as they do eating it. 

I’m not a fan of dairy and sugar, or all the other additives, fillers, and preservatives they load in conventional ice cream. But that doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy the same delicious cold and creamy treat. The last time I had store-bought ice cream, my stomach paid the price. However, with this recipe, you’ll not only feel sweet tooth satisfaction but energized by the natural goodness.   

I’ve tried a few different flavors of ice cream with various frozen fruit combinations but this one seems to be the winner.
