Egg and Avocado Spaghetti Squash Bowls

egg-and-avocado-spaghetti-squash-bowls-01

This dish is super easy to make but just a little time consuming due to cooking times but don’t let that scare you away. It makes a beautiful Sunday evening meatless meal, especially in the fall when the squash are in season and at their best. I was able to pick up a lovely lemon yellow spaghetti squash this weekend at my local market and the flesh was thick and very tasty. I also put aside some of the seeds to dry out so I can plant them in the spring. Considering that the meal is cooked and served in its own bowl clean up is a cinch.

    Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen.
