Super Squashmeal: The Oatmeal Replacement

Updated: Dec 4, 2022


Hi friends!

I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis, and am starting my fourth week of doing a Whole 30 with THM principles (so fuel separation still in play for the most part). I've felt a lot better (fewer headaches and less grouchy tummy and way more steady blood sugars) since cutting dairy and grains out so I'll be continuing on that trend for a while.


I had been enjoying have shredded zucchini/courgette in my PPP oatmeal in the fall, and the other I had a brilliant brain child of an idea come to me at lunchtime when I usually ate my PPP. I could just do ALL zucchini/courgette and/or yellow squash and see if that satisfied my craving. IT TOTALLY DID! I've been working on the recipe a bit since then, but here is my current winner. This is a THM E meal (carb based), that has all the non-starchy veggies added in already. It's a one stop shop kind of meal. I hope you enjoy it!


Super Squashmeal: The Oatmeal Replacement

Ingredients:

2 cups of grated zucchini/courgette and/or yellow squash

1/2 c nut milk (I've been using almond/coconut milk or just plain

1 small cooked sweet potato mashed (I cook several at a time in my instant pot and keep them in my fridge) or 1/2 of a medium sweet potato

1/3-1/2 a small apple cut cubed

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp MCT oil or 1/2 tsp coconut oil


Directions:

In a pot on the stove mix all ingredients together and cook for about 12 minutes (until the apples are a little soft and everything is heated through). Serve in a bowl. Voilå--squashmeal!


It is oddly delicious and satisfying. For the diabetics who are following along this has about 30g of carbs in it. My blood sugar does really nicely with this when I have it at lunch or later; I hope yours will too!
