Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash with Chicken & Feta

Mediterranean spaghetti squash

 

Sometimes I get into a food funk and find myself not eating enough vegetables for a week or two (maybe that’s you all the time). It’s really easy to get out of the vegetable eating routine–you eat sandwiches instead of salads for lunch, and hit up one of your go-to quick meals of macaroni and cheese or pizza a few too many times in a week. Then you make excuses about how you usually eat healthy, and it’s no big deal. Well, not getting in your veggies is a big deal! And it’s never too late to make a few simple swaps to bump up your veggie intake. What helps is having some tasty vegetable-packed recipes that are simple to prepare. I love this Mediterranean spaghetti squash recipe. Normally I would prepare it with whole wheat orzo instead of the spaghetti squash, but like I mentioned before, I was seriously lacking my vegetables. The spaghetti squash instead of pasta was actually a really tasty trade-off, and I ate a bowl full of delicious vegetables!

 

This meal keeps things simple–you can chop up your vegetables while your chicken and squash cook. There is no sauce or dressing to prepare; all the flavor comes from mixing in a few spices. Top the meal off with some feta, and voila, you are done. So no excuses this coming week–eat your vegetables!
