This little piggy loves spaghetti squash…

Since I try to refrain from carbs at dinner, I cure my pasta craving by using spaghetti squash instead. I didn’t realize how easy it was to make spaghetti squash until the other day when I noticed that I could cook it in the microwave rather than using the oven and heating up the whole house. Anyway, last night I decided to make myself a colorful combo not knowing what to expect but let me tell you, it was delicious!

I should probably mention that I love spicy food so this spicy mustard is a perfect lo-cal sauce for me. I use it a lot!

4-6 oz lean pork strips (cooked)

I tend to cook everything the day before then throw stuff together and heat it up in the microwave.

Spicy Tuna Kale Salad

I crave this almost every day. The kick of Trader Joe’s Wasabi Mayo makes this one of my favorite lunches.

1 can Albacore Tuna
1 T Trader Joe’s Wasabi Mayo
1 T Reduced Fat Vegenaise®
1/2 C Edamame (cooked and shelled)
1-2 C ZEN Blend Greens

I like to start by filling a bowl with 1 can of albacore tuna (drained) then mix in the wasabi mayo and Vegenaise®.

Next, I mix in my greens (I love new deep green blends by Earthbound Farm Organic) and top off with edamame.
