I still don't have a working oven, so I decided it was time to try a stovetop recipe. I completely altered this recipe and added two cauliflower heads, riced, and also doubled the ground beef. I kept everything else the same besides using more of a rounded measurement on the spices. I really enjoyed this meal and the way it turned out, but if you are newer to eating paleo or just eating better in general, I'd recommend sticking to the recipe as is. The cauliflower rice definitely took away from the butternut squash and other flavors, which made me realize I probably should have only added one head of cauliflower rice. Again though, I love cauliflower rice and didn't mind, it was just something I noted for next time. I also riced the butternut squash in the food processor because I was nervous it wouldn't cook through all the way on the stovetop. There is nothing worse then uncooked butternut squash! Anyways, just throwing that idea out there in case anyone else feels the same way. This recipe was super easy and fast to make if you're ever in need of a quick meal prep idea.

This meal scared me a little (no disrespect coach but compared to the others its not in the top 3). But you know what they say "never judge a book by its cover" and this was the case. I made this for work, was able to re-heat the it in minutes and I was good to go. Sometimes its not about the looks but more about the convenience and this was the case.
