I was surprised how good dinner was! I originally intended to try to use my Spirooli to make noodles out of the squash, knowing nothing about squashes, such as the fact that they are filled with seeds -- not the best to try and force through little noodle-making holes. So instead I seeded the squash and sliced it up and sautéed it in butter. Then added the peppers and sauce, and a couple minutes later the chickpeas, parsnip & cauliflower couscous (because I have so much of it left over) and some ground peanuts.

According to this diet, I think only spaghetti and acorn squash are ok (other squashes are much higher in sugar); you are also not supposed to overdo it on the chickpeas and peanuts (not to mention almonds, cashews, hummus, etc.). Nevertheless I don't think you can say that this dinner wasn't healthy. Everything is relative. I think it was as healthy as it was tasty.
