Spaghetti Squash with Meat Sauce

I owe a big thanks to my old friend, Katie, for introducing me to the Paleo lifestyle.  It was through social media, namely Facebook and Instagram, that I would find myself salivating at her pictures and recipes.  One day I finally messaged her with some questions, bought the book It Starts with Food, and the rest is history.  Her blog, The Daily Diehl, continues to be a great source for Paleo inspiration and recipes and I encourage you to check it out for some new ideas.  Her recipe for spaghetti squash with ground turkey meat (found here) is what inspired this post.
