Can Adding Spaghetti Squash to Your Diet Help You Lose Weight?

Vegetables are a great way to bulk up your meals and they can help contribute to your weight loss goals. The more veggies you eat, the more fiber, vitamins, and minerals you consume!


Spaghetti squash is one of my latest obsessions! It is rich in nutrients, low in calories, and high in fiber. It is also known for its manganese-content which is great for your metabolism, strong bones, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation. And thanks to its high fiber content it aids in digestion, keeping you fuller longer. The best part is that a huge plate of spaghetti squash has only 80 calories and is low in carbohydrates.


If pasta is your diet down fall or you are looking for a filling new vegetable, add spaghetti squash as one of your go-to side dishes. Check out this recipe for a family friendly dinner that will have everyone asking for more!
