If you follow a low-FODMAP diet to manage digestive issues, you know it can be nearly impossible to find certain products such as salad dressing or pasta sauce that don’t contain high-FODMAP ingredients like onions or garlic.

Sure, making everything from scratch is simple once you get the hang of it, but from time to time you want to throw together a meal that is both healthful and easy. Confession: I eat a lot of salad, but I don’t always make my own salad dressings. For those of you who love pasta or enchiladas, I’m sure you can relate when it comes to the sauce.

One meeting, one class, one nice gesture, one meal, one workout, one step at a time.

For me, spaghetti squash has that cozy essence while being fairly low in carbohydrate, and it makes a paleo meal feel more complete. 

Plus, it is crazy-versatile (just take a gander through my spaghetti squash archives for all sorts of recipe inspiration).
