Tuna Melt Spaghetti Squash Pizza

You know when you have a great recipe idea and then you forget about it for months?!?!? Well the list keeps getting bigger and bigger but I am so excited to finally make this one happen. I am working on some serious calendar blocking right now, which means organizing my days better and getting more done with the 24 hours that I have. While I focus on my health coaching career and helping others with their own physical, mental and financial stability, I want to make sure my blog doesn’t fall behind. Here’s the plan: block out time each day for my blog, cook more on Instagram, and spend more time developing recipes for all of you! I have a few other surprises up my sleeve but I’m still working on them so I’ll let you know…here’s a hint: sign up for my newsletter for updates! It’s as simple as going to my homepage, on the right side you will find the button to add your email address, and click submit. Done! 

Tuna Melt Spaghetti Squash Pizza

Now let’s talk about this Tuna Melt Spaghetti Squash Pizza! I am a huge fan of this spaghetti squash pizza for so many reasons.

  1. As a type 1 diabetic, I love anything that has less carbohydrates but still tastes amazing. Pizza is not exactly my friend, even the “low carb” ones with a thinner crust. So pizza crusts made from vegetables like spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles get a vote from me!
  2. I love how spaghetti squash is so neutral. It’s mildly sweet and almost flavorless (in my personal opinion) so it lends itself well to toppings like tomato sauce and cheese, meatballs, and of course, tuna! 
  3. Tuna melts are comfort food for me! When I was a kid, I loved making tuna melts in the sandwich maker and this brings me right back…just a lot healthier.
