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 link) herbal 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.
- 1 large spaghetti squash cooked and separated
- 1 cup of ranch dressing
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cups of cooked chicken
- 4 ounces of cream cheese (room temp)
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- ½ tsp sea salt
- Grease a 8X8 baking pan.
- Mix ½ a cup of cheddar cheese, cream cheese, ranch dressings, spices and chicken in a bowl.
- Add the spaghetti squash to cheese mixture and fold together until all if mixed well.
- Place in baking dish and add the remaining cheddar cheese
- Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.
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.
