Small Changes = Big Results!
Making the decision to get healthy is life changing. Old habits need to be lost and new habits must be established. By creating change in your routines and your thinking, you are able to reach optimal health! Although these may sound like overwhelming tasks and adjustments, the truth is that they don’t have to be and you don’t have to do it alone either. Big results come from making small, intentional changes in your daily life. Instead of trying to conquer your health overnight, begin by making small, manageable changes such as eating breakfast, cutting out soda, going for a ten minute walk, or getting to bed an hour earlier at night. Once your first small change has become a habit, you can move onto implementing and establishing more and more healthy habits. In addition to providing momentum, establishing a small healthy habit can produce real results. Walking ten minutes a day results in a total of 5 HOURS walked at the end of month! This type of change is doable, sustainable, and adds up to make a big difference. Creating habits of health is about making practical changes that move you toward optimal health. Making consistent, incremental changes will lead you to big results!!
-1 spaghetti squash
-¼ teaspoon sea salt and ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper for seasoning
-1 tablespoon peanut oil or sesame oil (not sesame SEED oil)
-1 ½ cup cabbage, thinly sliced
-4 chicken breasts, chopped & cooked
-1 large clove garlic, minced
-1/2 cup gluten free chicken broth
-2 tablespoons of PB2
-2 tablespoons rice vinegar (unseasoned)
-3 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
-4 drops hot sauce (or to taste)
-Optional garnish: 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts, chopped & green onions, sliced thin
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Wash the outside of the spaghetti squash, cut in half, and scoop out the seeds. Season with salt and pepper. In a 9×13 pan add about 1/2 cm of water to the bottom. Lay the squash cut side down and cover with foil. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the “spaghetti” easily pulls away from the edge with a fork. Let the squash rest for 5 minutes and then “shred” the spaghetti with a fork. Set aside. In a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium high, saute the garlic and cabbage for 3 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Add the chicken broth, peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and hot sauce to the skillet. Heat until smooth and combined. Return veggies, chicken, and spaghetti squash to the pan. Toss until well coated and heated. Serve warm garnished with the chopped peanuts and green onions.
