Default Planning for Monday Oct. 16

Yeah, I know it's early, but I went grocery shopping this weekend and am about to go make a ton of spghetti squash for the week, so I've got food on my mind, and better to post about it than to eat it, right?

Goals:
  • intentional exercise (who cares how much--right now I'm getting NONE)
  • 3+ liters plain water
  • 1800 calories or less
  • eat at least 5 times a day
  • 100+ grams of protein

My plan for Monday is something like:
  • 5 turkey sausage links (183)
  • 2 cups spaghetti squash (83) with 1 cup tomato sauce (140) and 1 Italian turkey sausage (110)
  • Healthy Choice sesame chicken meal (230)
  • yogurt (80)
  • 5.88 oz cooked chicken (232) and 1 cup frozen chopped broccoli (41) with 4T honey dijon marinade (96)
That brings me to 1058 calories and 102g protein total, but I'm sure I'll add either a fruit smoothie or some fat-free, sugar-free pudding in the evening as well.

It's not pasta noodles, just squash. You buy the squash and cook it, and then scrape the flesh out with a fork, and it comes out in strands like pasta. To me, it's almost flavorless, so with a good sauce, it's an excellent pasta replacement, expecially considering it's only about 45 calories for a cup of spaghetti squash vs. nearly 200 calories for a cup of cooked pasta. Here's a link (there's tons of info if you Google, but this one had good photos):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spaghetti_squash

There are lots of other recipes, but I've only ever used it as a spaghetti substitute. I never knew about it either until I noticed other women here on 3fc mention it!

yupyup--I have found it at Trader Joe's and Wegman's around here. Whenever I go to our chain grocery store (Giant), I see a sign for the spaghetti squash, but it's never there. The sign is usually posted over a crate of acorn squash, which is a round green gourd and SO not the same thing! So make sure it is an oblong yeloowish colored squash to be sure the sign is correct

Also, for anyone thinking of cooking the squash, most of the directions I find online say to cut lengthwise and put in the microwave in a dish with 1/4 cup water and wrap with plastic wrap. Umm, WAY too much work for me--it worked just fine when I just cut it in half, scooped out the seeds, and placed it in the microwave round side down--no pan, no water, no plastic wrap
