Spaghetti squash delivers a host of health benefits including potassium, Vitamin A and about 9 percent of the daily recommended fiber intake. It can be a bit difficult to prepare, however, namely when it pertains to cutting the very firm squash in half. If you find that's the case, poke holes all over the squash when it's whole and place it in the microwave, cooking it for five minutes. It will then cut very easily. Follow along with the video below.

Almond flour is a friend to those reducing carbs, and once you get used to cooking with it, you'll soon find that the world of low-carb options opens up. It does behave differently than wheat flour, so you will have to make some tweaks, such as rolling out the dough on parchment paper and using the parchment as a guide to roll and hold the dough together. One way it doesn't differ, though, is in the delicious taste. See how this is made in video below.
7. Spaghetti squash pizza nests (h/t Beauty and the Foodie)
