What I Ate Wednesday- Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bowls

Good Morning! I am back with another WIAW! This week I’m sharing a new recipe for Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash that I tested out last week for dinner. It turned out so amazing that I decided to share the love with all of you!

 

Breakfast: Banana Caramel baked french toast for breakfast. I especially love that I can prepare this the night before and simply microwave it in the morning to warm it up!

Morning Snack:  I picked up a few of the Power Crunch Salted Caramel Escape bars from Vitamin Shoppe. I love these bars, they are so healthy, satisfying, and tasty. They’re sweet, but not cloyingly sweet like some protein bars, and the texture is perfect. This bar gets a 9/10 rating from me!

Lunch: I’ve been a bit obsessed with breakfast foods lately. I could literally eat some type of breakfast food for every meal if I had to! This bacon, egg and cheese sandwich definitely hit the spot for lunch! I added some sweet potato hummus to liven up the flavor a bit!

One of my blogging goals for this year is to bring you more quick and easy meals… so far I would say I’ve done pretty good!

Okay so on to the meal! It’s time to whip up my quick and tasty Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash bowl!

 These spaghetti squash bowls are hearty, comforting and absolutely delicious. I’m fairly certain you’ll be as hooked as we are and I can’t wait for you to try this recipe! Feel free to adjust the ingredients and amounts to what you have on hand. Enjoy!

Evening Snack: My go to nighttime dessert lately has been Arctic Zero  Brownie Blast. I have been very lucky that my local Walmart has been keeping this flavor and Cookie Dough in stock. The toppings that evening included NuNaturals Cocoa Syrup, a crumbled Lenny and Larry’s Double Chocolate Chip Cookie and mini marshmallows!

  1. Your breakfast, snack, lunch, and dessert are all fabulously delicious; however, the #1 star is definitely the AMAZING spaghetti squash recipe! YUM! I’m a little intimidated by preparing spaghetti squash, but I do love roasting it and enjoying it with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and steamed broccoli. Happy Wednesday! xo

    • Hey Liz! Don’t be intimidated by preparing it! I’ve tried roasting and also the microwave when I’m in a pinch! I love your simple way of preparing with marinara and mozzarella! Sounds yummy – xo

      • If you’re willing to share your microwave method (I’ve read far too many microwave variations online, so I’m always confused which recipe to actually try, haha), I’d love to hear it!
