Buffalo Spaghetti Squash

Every so often I get a craving for Buffalo Wings. Tender, juicy, deliciously spicy Buffalo Wings…see: I feel it coming on right about now! What I discovered is that just because I made a commitment to healthy lifestyle change doesn’t mean that I cannot enjoy all the flavors that Buffalo Wings offer. So – I found a more nutritious way to indulge in that Buffalo flavor: Buffalo Spaghetti Squash. Cooking it is real simple and I’d compare it to cooking a twice-baked potato. Plus, it’s perfect for summer because it makes a fun side at a party and it is unique enough that you can be sure another party guest isn’t going to show up with it. Try it for yourself and find out how I brought that deliciously spicy Buffalo flavor back into my life in a Profile-friendly way!
