Since we filmed this segment, I’ve been eating a lot of winter squash. I’ve had squash before, but not as simple and delicious as it is roasted: cut it in half (you can also roast it whole), bake on a tray cut-side down in a 450 degree F oven for 20 minutes (my oven sets off the smoke detector at 450, so I’ve been doing 400 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes).
Once it’s cool, you can add olive oil or butter or coconut oil, and enjoy!
As you’ll see in the video, I’m a newbie to spaghetti squash, but have deemed it my new favorite side or main dish. Add some extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, pepper, sea salt, and, if you’d like, chopped grilled chicken or rinsed chickpeas for protein. Since I work out in the evenings after my workday, I’ll pop a spaghetti squash in the oven and let it roast while I shower post-workout.
