The RainI had big plans for last night's workout. It had been getting cooler out so I had planned to go on a hike. I was going to head out on the long trail and do a quick workout at every bench I came across. But then Issac came all the way to Missouri. I was so bummed.
Saturday is my "Fun Workout' day. I think the number one reason people burn out and give up is because they no longer enjoy their workout. So even if I think I may not be getting a great workout, I feel like it is beneficial to have a fun workout at least once a week.
So I went through some other options, but nothing really jumped out at me. So I decided to do an old workout of mine that I hadn't done in a while.
The WorkoutThis workout is only 15 minutes long but it is an intense 15 minutes if you push yourself.
The Spaghetti SquashAnd now, the thing I am most excited about!! I finally experimented with Spaghetti Squash. And I will say, complete success!
I have heard of many ways to prepare Spaghetti Squash, and I am sure I will experiment with just about all of them eventually. But here is how round one went down.
First, I sliced it in half long-ways.
Second, placed face down on a cookie sheet and poked some holes in it. It was actually a lot harder to get the fork out of the squash than it was to get it in!
Then I baked it at 375* for 45 minutes. Scooped out the seeds and insides. And scrapped out the flesh with a fork.
It was still a little crunchy, so I boiled it on the stove top for about ten minutes while I made my spaghetti sauce.
It was so good! Nathan even liked it! We will most definitely be replacing pasta with squash from now on.
Stay tuned for when I try it out in the microwave!!
Have you heard of or tried any new healthy recipes lately?
