OUCH! My back still hurts! I am writing this with a bag of peas on my lower back. I haven’t been able to work out all week, only stretching, lots of stretching and some yoga sequences. Okay, enough rambling…
I have been searching high and low for some creative healthy meal ideas. I get bored easily with the same kinda stuff. I am trying to stick with lighter fulfilling meals because I am currently doing Weight Watchers (works very well for me, we do an at work program!!). As I mentioned before, I have been trying to plan for the whole week. If I don’t do that, my “diet” gets out of control. Its all about control people!!
So I had an extra spaghetti squash from last weeks meal planning. And I was searching for some inspiration. Ladies and gents….this was my inspiration. Southwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash by The Comfort of Cooking.
I didn’t follow the recipe at all except for how to cook the actually squash prior to stuffing. I love seeing fabulous recipes and creating them into your own. Which is exactly what I did, you should never feel that you have to follow every step/ingredient. I sauteed ground turkey breast, onion, and black beans with some cumin and taco seasoning. Then I cut the squash in half and shredded it. I added the turkey mixture. Top with a little cheddar cheese, light sour cream, scallions, and cilantro! And O.M.G. So incredibly delicious. I am playing around with a recipe for Mediterranean stuff squash! I will share that shortly!
I was too hungry and impatient to take pictures of my meal….plus I am working on my horrible food photography skills…they are horrendous!
Where do you find inspiration for meals/recipes? Do you meal plan, if not, do you “get out of control”?!?
