Foods You Should Eat Everyday Challenge – Day 6

If you didn’t catch my initial post with the list of the foods you should eat every day you can click here

Gotta say, I love spaghetti squash and once this challenge is complete I’ll have had two different spaghetti squash recipes this week but I was super excited to get to eat actual pasta.  It was whole wheat but still… it’s pasta.  🙂  I also had amazing success with my last Olive Garden copy cat recipe so I was super excited to try this one out.  You’ll have to come back in a few days to hear how it went!  (I’ll be providing every recipe that I used this week over the next few days). 

I’m still finding out that my original meal plan was just waaaay too much food.  As you’ll see below, there’s a lot that’s not getting eaten every day.
