Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

These tasty asparagus spears are so simple to make. I’ve made these in the oven before, but using the Air Fryer makes it even quicker and easier. There is no need to preheat the oven, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like an oven does, and one of my favorite reasons to use the air fryer is the ease of clean-up. The inside basket and base basket are light weight and a breeze to clean.

Lightly spritz the asparagus with avocado oil or olive oil using an oil spritzer like this Evo Oil Sprayer. I bought this set of two when I bought the air-fryer and I really like how easy they are to use. (As of today, June 26, there is a coupon for $4 off the set on Amazon when you purchase, just be sure to click the coupon to apply it to your order. )

You could also cut your asparagus up into smaller lengths, but I really like how dramatic they look long. Ha.

This recipe makes it easy for me to get more vegetables in my diet. I made the green beans and sausage recipe in my Instant Pot while the asparagus was cooking in my Air Fryer and it was all so easy and the kitchen didn’t get hot at all.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Now that summer’s in full swing and the temperatures are warming up, we’ve been enjoying these frosty orange drinks almost everyday. It’s so nice to come in from working outside and be able to quickly make this drink to cool off. It tastes like an orange julius from that popular ice cream fast food chain.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

I add a scoop of collagen peptides to this drink to get some extra protein and health benefits in my diet, but if I’m planning on sharing this drink with one of my daughters, I’ll add 2 scoops to make sure we both get a good serving of collagen.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Another thing I love about this drink is that by adding in the orange with lots of the white pith still attached it provides more than a full serving of vitamin C. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m much more likely to drink this fun drink than to peel an orange and eat it. I quarter the orange and run a paring or tomato knife just under the peel to leave as much of the white pith on as possible. When I’ve got all the other ingredients mixed up, I’ll add the orange quarters to the blender with the ice cubes. Pour into a quart jar or two pint jars. Enjoy and be refreshed!

These stainless steel straws make it easy to make your drink extra special and you won’t ever run out of those plastic straws.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Step by step pictures and instructions on how to cut and cook a spaghetti squash in the oven and in the Instant Pot. Easy to make ahead for quick dinners. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

I remember the first time I tried a spaghetti squash I was perplexed at how hard it was and really didn’t know how to cut it open. So I pulled out my big butcher knife and called my husband into the kitchen and asked him to take care of it. He did and then I baked it up and we had the first of many wonderful meals featuring spaghetti squash.

As time went on I realized I needed to be able to cut that hard spaghetti squash myself and so I searched for the best way to cut one and this method is now my go to way to cut it open. It’s actually super easy and we never really needed that big ole’ knife after all.

Supplies needed:

A small paring knife (I love and use this one daily)
Cutting board
Large spoon and bowl for the seeds
Cooking spray (I use these spray bottles to spray my oil)
Baking pan for baking in the oven or use an Instant Pot

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Hold onto one end of the spaghetti squash, keeping your fingers far from the cutting area.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Take the paring knife and insert just the tip. Do not push the knife in very far as it will get stuck from the pressure of the shell. So put just the tip in and then pull up and make another little cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Make your way all the way around the spaghetti squash until you connect with your first cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

You may need to go around the squash with your paring knife one more time making the cut just a little bit deeper. This will not take hardly any time at all to do.

Then pull it apart.

There it is all cut and ready to go.

Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. I also use my knife to clean up the stringy seeded area a little more thorough.

Ready to cook.

When I bake them I like to spritz the squash with some avocado or olive oil, you could also use a coconut cooking spray. It’s not necessary to spritz them if you will be cooking them in the Instant Pot.

Give a good sprinkle of salt.

Place open cut side down in baking pan.

I often make two or three spaghetti squash at a time and keep the cooked spaghetti strands in my refrigerator for a quick meal. It also freezes well, so I may put half of it in a freezer bag and freeze for another day.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

I bake it in the oven at 350° for 60 to 70 minutes until nice and fork tender. I like to have my spaghetti squash soft so if you would prefer to have a crunchy bite just bake it for a little less.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Let it cool and then using a fork pull out the long strands of spaghetti.

Keep pulling out the spaghetti strands.

This part amazes me everytime! All these strands of squash come right out looking like spaghetti.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Two spaghetti squash will make about 8 cups of cooked squash.

I use spaghetti squash in any recipe that calls for pasta. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

Ingredients

  • spaghetti squash

Instructions

  1. Using a paring knife, cut around the middle of the squash making very small cuts with a paring knife. Continue cutting around the middle until you reach your original cut. Go back over the cutting line with your paring knife making your cuts a little deeper. Go all the way around again. The squash should come apart. Scoop out seeds.

Baking in oven for one or more spaghetti squash

  1. Spritz the cut side of the spaghetti squash with avocado, olive, or coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt and place cut side down in baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 60-75 minutes until fork tender.
  3. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.

Cooking in Instant Pot for one spaghetti squash

  1. Place the rack in the bottom of the pot and add 1 cup water. Place the two halves of the squash in the pot. You may need to place on up and one down to fit. Close lid and make sure steam vent is closed.
  2. Press Manual mode and set at 10 minutes for pressure.
  3. When pressure is finished and it switches to warm mode (with the L for low in front of the numbers) turn it off and carefully open the steam vent.
  4. When all the pressure is released you can open the pot and remove the squash.
  5. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.

Frosted Vanilla Blackberry Lemonade Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

Blackberries are so yummy and they contain an incredible amount of nutrients that it would be good to have them in your diet on a regular basis. One cup of blackberries contains half the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C. These beautiful dark blackberries are extra high in polyphenols, which are a type of antioxidant known for their cancer-fighting abilities.

Frosted Vanilla Blackberry Lemonade Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

I add glucomannan to this recipe to give it a more creamy texture. If you don’t have glucomannan you can make this drink without it, but it will have more of an icy texture.

Frosted Vanilla Blackberry Lemonade Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

This recipe calls for a scoop of collagen for added protein, it will help satisfy your appetite longer. Collagen also has many health benefits. When I use it I can tell a difference in my joints, they feel better – less noticeable and my hair and nails grow stronger and longer.

I think one of my favorite things to bake has to be muffins. Muffins are so easy to make and just plain fun to eat. And I love their look and texture. They great for breakfast or a quick snack. These would look really pretty with a special brunch as well.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

These muffins have one cup of chopped strawberries and it makes for a very moist muffin if you prefer a drier muffin you can lower the amount of strawberries to 3/4 cup.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

To sweeten these muffins you can use the Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or my homemade version of that which is a mixture of 1 cup of Now Foods non-GMO Erythritol and 1 teaspoon of Now Foods Better Stevia. Our family likes this brand of stevia the best of all the ones that we have tried. I usually buy the 1 lb. container and it lasts for several months.

I started making frosty drinks when I first started following Trim Healthy Mama a few years ago. Never to leave a recipe alone, I started dabbling around with different flavor combinations and I was hooked. These drinks are so refreshing and so good for you.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

A few years ago some dear friends gave us some of their extra red raspberry bushes. At the time I wasn’t thrilled about the idea because I had grown up enjoying my grandmother’s black raspberry pie that she made from the wild black raspberry bushes that were in our woods. I thought they were the only “good” raspberry. While I still think black raspberries are amazing, I have come to appreciate these red beauties more and more. They’re incredibly low in carbs like most all berries, and they’re so healthy for you.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

This recipe makes one-quart serving, but if it’s too big you can share half of it with a loved one. If you decide to divide the recipe and share it, I suggest you double the amount of collagen so that there is a good serving of collagen in both drinks.

For you Trim Healthy Mamas, this Frosted Raspberry Lemonade is an FP and is best enjoyed within the first 30-45 minutes of making.

Frosted Mocha - Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

This Frosted Mocha is a delicious and satisfying drink. Perfect for a snack between meals or for a big dessert.

Tips for making Frosted Mocha:

  • Keep an eye on the carbs in your cocoa powder, some of them contain more carbs than others. I use raw cacao powder when I can for an added healthy benefit, but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this delightful drink.
  • The added collagen in this drink gives you a good amount of protein to help make this a more satisfying snack. THM Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen works well in this recipe. It’s also great for your skin and joints.
  • The glucomannan helps give this drink a creamy texture. Either THM Glucomannan or Now Glucomannan would work well.
  • This drink is best enjoyed within a half-hour of making.
  • I do use a Vitamix blender and so I have a tamper that I use to push down the ice while it’s blending. If you are using a different type of blender you may need to stop the blender occasionally and use a large spoon or rubber spatula to push down the ice.

I put in just a bit of butter flavoring in this recipe, if you don’t have any it will still work, but it does add a light, buttery flavor that I think is worth adding in.
