So I made the spaghetti squash and it was amazing with my ground beef meat sauce and mushrooms/onions! It’s the season for the squash, I”m telling you! I’m not alone on this thought http://bit.ly/riyF4u I never thought to make it with avocado, but I do love avocado.
Below is an excerpt from this article http://bit.ly/pl29Iv This is what the Paleo diet is about…very well explained!
The Carbohydrate Problem
Most people know that excessive sugar in the diet is unhealthy. Yet they are totally unaware that some foods act just like sugar, once the body breaks them down. Foods that if eaten in excess, can be just as catastrophic to the body as excessive sugar.
These foods are carbohydrates. Now before you swear off carbohydrates totally, you must understand, your body needs a constant supply of carbohydrates, especially your brain and spinal cord. It’s important that you consume carbohydrates with every meal. Carbohydrates supply the energy your body needs to function properly.
Here’s the problem. Your body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose. If you’re not physically active enough to use up all the glucose you’ve taken in, your body then stores it as fat in your liver and muscle fiber, for later use.
Most people today, take in many more carbohydrates than their body can use. So their body has no choice but to store the excess glucose. Continual weight gain is the immediate result. If the situation is not fixed, things like diabetes, heart attack, and stroke are very likely.
Most commonly, when we think of carbohydrates, we think of breads, pastas, and potatoes (starchy carbohydrates). However fruits and vegetables, and some beans are also excellent sources of carbohydrates, and a much healthier choice.
The Carbohydrate Solution
Only eat starchy carbohydrates after a work out or heavy exercise. Otherwise, keep starchy carbohydrates to a bare minimum. Eat fruits and/or vegetables with every meal. This way you are not getting over loaded with starchy carbohydrates, yet you are getting a continuous supply of healthy carbohydrates throughout the day, keeping your energy level high and your body healthy.
