What Motivates You to Make Changes? How About Easy Squash Dinner

What motivates you to make change?  For me it can be life changes like illness of a family member, death, moving, world events, tragedy,  excitement, etc. But those motivators don’t sustain me because they are focused on people or circumstances.  There is one motivator that really keeps me focused on making changes.

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24

 I can only be successful at change when my motivation is purely and solely to work at it for God.

If you are motivated to eat healthier and you are starving for time try this easy squash dinner:

Easy Spaghetti Squash Dinner

1 large spaghetti squash (3-4lbs)
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 tbs minced garlic
¼  of a medium onion chopped
1 14 ounce can of cannellini beans (rinsed or no salt added & drained)
2 tbs olive oil
grated Parmesan 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350˚
  • Slice spaghetti squash in half, scoop out seeds and turn face down in a large pan with just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan (if you are really short on time put the whole squash in the oven, cut it when done and scoop seeds out then)
  • Bake in oven for 45 minutes 
  • In a sauce pan sauté garlic, and onions in 1 tbs of olive oil until onions are clear

  • Add the rest of the olive oil and cannellini beans and sauté
  • Add spaghetti sauce to the bean mixture and simmer for 10 minutes
  • When squash is done flesh should be tender.  Use a fork to scrap out the flesh.  Spoon sauce over the squash
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese 
This is a stand alone dish or you can serve it with a salad.
