My solution to this and the whole food issue is to buy a spiralizer - I bought mine off of amazon for cheap. It allows you to chop your vegetables into noodle shapes.
A recipe: Butternut squash pasta with sausage and browned butter
Peel a butternut squash, slice in half and seed. Use the spiralizer to chop squash into ribbons (shaped like flat egg noodles- directions will be included with your spiralizer). The noodles may be a little long (the length of the squash) so give them one or two rough chops to shorten them a little.
Then season ground pork with sage, salt, pepper, and any other spices you like your sausage to contain. Fry in fat of choice until browned and crumbly. Reserve. Add butter to pan, scraping up browned bits (you want the butter to brown a bit). Sautee squash noodles in batches until al dente (or preferred texture). Combine all in large bowl, adding more butter and sage to taste. Enjoy twirly, pasta-like primal goodness. For those that don't do dairy, EVOO can be substituted, but will lack some of the depth of flavor.
Perfect autumny goodness. :)
