Community Contributor: Welcome, Lindsay Stein Walker!

Hello everyone! My name is Lindsay Walker and I am so excited to be contributing to the Movebutter Community. I am 35 years old, a stay at home mother to two very smart and adorable girls, Camille (7) and Meredith (5), and have been married to my husband Brad for 8 years. I also work on the weekends in our local hospital as a Xray/CT Technologist. So to me, I have the best of both worlds. My favorite thing to do above eating is cooking of course!

Now enough about me and onto what I hope to be bringing you all with these articles. We as a family have now moved to eating mainly Paleo; I say mainly because come on this girl can not fully give up chocolate and bread. So I hope you will follow me on our journey into this new diet. I am sure there will be major triumphs and major failures when it comes to what my kids will eat, but I promise you I will give you all the gory details into this adventure. I will bring you helpful recipes, tips, tricks, and observational snippets about what it’s like to be a mother trying to survive in the Midwest and to cook healthy.

Here is my first recipe:

Last night I prepared baked chicken thighs and my first attempt at spaghetti squash. Both came out beautifully and got a thumbs up from my kiddos. Which I was completely surprised with the squash, but what they ended up doing was tearing the chicken apart and mixing the two. This will definitely be a meal I will cook again. Also the spaghetti squash was super easy to make and is so versatile. I used is as a side and only put a little seasoning on it. But there are so many wonderful recipes out there- you can use it as a replacement for noodles.

Spaghetti Squash

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut squash in half and scoop out the seeds.

Put on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cook for approximately 60 minutes or until you can run a fork through it and it starts to form little strands like spaghetti.
