Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! The boyfriend and I took it easy this weekend. We have both been extremely busy and were in need of some relaxation! It was so nice just to spend some time at home!

On the blogging front I have some exciting news to share with all of you Twitter and Instagram followers! Aundra from Chester Town Fit For Life and I will be hosting a November Photo-A-Day challenge!! It will be geared towards all things food and fitness related with a little fall fun thrown in! Stay tuned for more details on this exciting challenge!! ?

I know today’s recipe may seem odd to many people since spaghetti squash is usually eaten in the savory form. Most people use it as a low carb/low calorie substitute for pasta. But this squash has a neutral flavor that adapts well to both savory and sweet. Since I first tried spaghetti squash many years ago (6 actually), I have eaten it both ways. It makes the perfect sweet, filling dessert when combined with cinnamon and some stevia! Don’t be afraid to try this….I bet you will love it just as much as I do! ?

If you are looking for a sweet and creamy, yet healthy treat, this is the way to go! It is just set around the outside, yet still creamy and custard like in the middle! It has the warmth from the cinnamon with a hint of sweetness! It is absolutely amazing! Plus it is loaded with 7g of fiber!! It is perfect topped with a dollop of greek yogurt and a few raisins! Or serve it along side some fresh roasted turkey and Brussels sprouts for a sweet side dish! Yummy! ?

If you have never tried sweet spaghetti squash, please do it NOW!! I have many more sweet versions of this versatile veggie to come! ?
