GLUTEN-FREE SPAGHETTI SQUASH CARBONARA
I feel like I've been dieting my entire life. Even when I say I'm just eating "clean and healthy" the reality is that I'm on a yet another diet. Ugh!
Even after a 100lb+ weight loss I still have a few pounds left and find I’ll always be a work in progress. Feelin’ me? If you’re reading this I’m sure you do ;)
Now, let’s get down to business.
I’ve never been a traditional breakfast kinda gal. Steak & eggs over sugary donuts any day. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite breakfasts; Spaghetti Squash Carbonarra. You read that right…BREAKFAST. This is a low carb meal that has just enough protein and fat to carry me through my mornings. Of course this can be eaten any time of day, but when you start changing your idea of what breakfast should be, it will open up a world of options for you.
