Cheesy chicken and ranch spaghetti squash casserole

Right…I will be honest and admit that I have not been the best at sticking to the Trim Healthy Mama lately. I decided that had to stop and I need to hop back on board.

I am so glad I did! I feel so much better getting away from sugar. So much better that I have been eating dairy with out tummy aches! For.real! I am so excited.

And I totally decided to test just how dairy would settle with this recipe. I’m telling you…ranch dressing, cream cheese and cheddar cheese, this cheesy chicken and ranch spaghetti squash casserole  is amazing!

I had some to taste, then I had a small plate full, then I ate a lot!

I did load up on my (affiliate linkherbal bitters but normally that doesn’t help too much. No tummy aches or rumbles in the belly. VICTORY!

I am on a spaghetti squash kick right now. I put one in the crock pot (I poke some holes in it) and let it cook until I am ready to use it at dinner time.

This dish is an S meal if you follow the (affiliate link) Trim Healthy Mama plan.  It was great with a nice big salad and homemade dressing.

I am so excited to be able to have dairy again. For the time being I am trying not to push it, but it sure is nice to know that when  I want a dairy treat, I can have one! Plus, everyone in my family loved this. It would make a great dish to bring to a pot luck.

I will admit I have been discouraged about my health for a bit but it feels good to be able to see progress after taking time this winter to take it easy. I was gentle with my body and had a plan of a few simple things to do daily to keep my body going.

    This looks delicious! I am a huge fan of cheese, so I would have no trouble eating this. I would probably not be very good at sharing it with anyone else. Thank you for sharing Jess! :)
