Substitutes don't normally bother me. I have actually used broccoli slaw to make a chicken alfredo. It works fine for me.
I have been having some food allergies, so I have eliminated broccoli for the time being.
I enjoyed using the broccoli slaw because it is so easy to cook compared to the spaghetti squash.
We went out of town at Christmas. We went to a really nice restaurant and they served spaghetti squash with holiday seasonings like, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, etc. (I'm not exactly sure which ones they used, but it had that holiday flavor). It was a little sweet and savory. It was so good.
My ticker reflects my original high weight
4/22/15 My current goal is to get into the 160's. First weigh in after setting goal: 176.8
12/7/15 I finally got back into the 150's!
01/1/16 Vacation hit and now it's my goal to get back into the 150's.
I started my most recent weight loss journey January 2008.
I lost 1/2 of my starting body weight and entered into maintenance May 2011.
Now the real work begins!
