    Spaghetti Squash - definitive information?

    Primal Fuel
    Doing a search through this site, I can't get a definitive answer if spaghetti squash is a "good" carb or not. Poking through the threads, a lot of people seemed to have asked the same question but there doesn't seem to be an answer. I bought one for the first time today, cooked it and shredded it and oh my Lord it's delicious. Where have you been all my life! But I know very little about it and want to know a little more about how to best incorporate it into my diet.

    What on earth...
    Of course it is!
    It's a vegetable. EAT IT!

    Use it how ever you like.
    Google up some recipes... convert them to "Primal" if they have non-Primal ingredients.
    Many people use it as a noodle replacement with traditional red meat sauce, just like spaghetti.
    Or with a creamy white sauce and some other vegetables for a prima vera.
    Or just add some butter and garlic and use it as a side dish.
    Delicious.

    Enjoy your food.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    I love spaghetti squash! And I never worry about its carb content. I make a tomato sauce from scratch with lots of fresh veggies and fresh herbs, some Primal meatballs, and then use the squash as others would use pasta. Can't go wrong!!

    Spaghetti squash is great! And one makes many servings of "spaghetti". I cook em in the slow cooker. Just plunk them in whole with a little water and a few hours later, tasty perfection.

    Yeah it's primal, and I love the stuff. I eat one a week. Either use it as a pasta replacement for spaghetti, or sauté it in olive oil with basil and diced tomatoes and serve it as a side veggie.


    edit: parsley goes very well with it too!

    Whole food isn't primal.

    Spaghetti squash is actually pretty low in carbs, compared to most other squashes or tubers. I regularly eat 1-2 cups of the stuff with homemade bolognese sauce. Also, if mac and cheese was your comfort food as a kid, spaghetti squash with butter, garlic salt, and parmesan or nutritional yeast tastes gives me the same warm fuzzy feelings. Love it.

    Spaghetti squash is a fun food. I always wonder what the seeds would be like toasted. Anyone ever toast them up?
