Spaghetti Squash at it's Finest
I'm officially on the bandwagon



First and foremost, just look at this:


^^Can you believe that!? 
Makes this dish all the more great. I couldn't fit all of the nutrients and vitamins in the screenshot that are in spaghetti squash, go ahead and google it yourself to see :)

This was my first success in working with spaghetti squash and it was actually quite simple!

To Prepare Spaghetti Squash:

1. Preheat over to 375
2. Cut the squash in half (long way)
3. Scrape out the seeds and gunk from the inside. 
I found an icecream scooper to be an awesome tool for this
4. Place cut sides down on foil-lined baking sheet
5. Cook for one hour
6. Let cool for 15-30 minutes
7. Take a fork and begin pulling out the "spaghetti"





Now for this specific dish...

Ingredients:
Spaghetti Squash (prepared)
Black Beans (one can)
Whole Kernel Corn (one can)
Zesty Tomatoes (one can)
Meat - if desired (I went with pepperoni) Shredded chicken would be a great addition!

While the spaghetti squash was cooking, I combined all other ingredients in a bowl and then began to cook over the stove on a low setting. Once the squash was done, I forked it (I know, but it works) and combined it in the pan, moving up to a medium setting for about 5 minutes. Then it was time to serve!! I topped with some finely grated romano and asiago cheese.

Foods That Resemble Body Organs They Treat


I wanted to share the information I read about today on Healthy Food House because it was a great reminder of how powerful some of these basic foods really are.

The tomato is similar with the heart because it has red color and four chambers just like the heart. Studies showed that tomato is very rich in iron and potassium which makes it extremely healthy for the blood and heart.

Walnut looks like the brain. It has left and right hemisphere and folds like the brain has. It is well known that walnut creates transmitters in the brain function.

Celery is a plant which has similarities with our bones. Our bones contain 23% sodium which is the exact amount of sodium in the celery as well. It has been proven that celery supplements our skeleton’s needs.

Avocado is very beneficial for ovaries and uterus, and when it comes to its looks, you guessed it – it looks similar with the uterus. By eating only one avocado a week you will prevent ovarian and cervical cancer. Hormones will also be balanced thanks to the avocado.

Pancreas has its similarities with the sweet potato. Thanks to sweet potato, the pancreas can easily balance sugar levels in the blood.

If you slice carrot into circles you can see that it looks almost exactly like a human eye. Science has shown that carrots are good for the eyes because they increase blood flow and improves sight in general.

Grapefruit and other citrus-like fruits look like breast. Grapefruit assists in moving the lymph glances through the breast thus preventing breast cancer.

Ginger successfully treats swelling and gastric upsets, and yes, it does look like the stomach.

Red wine‘s color reminds on the color of the blood. When consumed in moderation, red wine reduces the risk of blood clots and the risk of getting diseases that are associated with heart disease and stroke.

Clams resemble the testicles. Studies showed that clams are great for the health of the male reproductive organs.

If you cut Agaricus campestris (type of mushrooms) in half you will certainly find similarities to its look to the look of the human ear(s). 

Mushrooms improve hearing as they are one of the few foods rich in vitamin D. This is an important vitamin for the overall health of the bones.
