Day 7

One week mark! Ahh! So today I woke up, had one egg and then went to CrossFit. At CrossFit I got to see my friends beautiful baby boy. Then me and two friends from CrossFit went to this place called Lemonade, and let me tell you- this place is delicious! Also there were tons of Paleo choices which was awesome. I got some curry cauliflower with almonds, coconut mango chicken salad and spicy chicken salad.  Just check out the menu: Lemonade. I also tried a sugar free lemonade- and it was really, really sour. I don't think I will do that again.

Then for dinner it was time for one of our favorites- Spaghetti Squash with Meaty Marinara!

For this recipe you will need: 
1 spaghetti squash 
2 lbs ground beef (grass fed if possible) 
A large can of Trader Joe's Marinara 
4 garlic cloves 
olive oil 
Spices (we like basil, italian seasoning, garlic salt & red peppers) 

Matt decided he wanted to cook dinner tonight- so he started by cutting the squash in half. Then he put a little olive oil on a baking sheet and put the squash open face down and baked in the oven on about 375 degrees for 45 mins- once you can stick your fork in it- it is done.

While the squash was cookin' Matt got the sauce started. He started by choppin' up the garlic and sauteing it and then added the ground beef. He cooked the beef, drained the beef and then added the marinara sauce.

Next- he took out the squash- flipped it over and used a fork to get the 'spaghetti'. Use your fork and scrape the squash.
  Add the sauce to the squash and BAM. Dinner is cooked.
