I developed this recipe as a protocol-friendly breakfast alternative for those following The Myers Way® and missing traditional hash browns. Serve with Everyday Breakfast Sausage and enjoy!

Spaghetti squash is high in vitamins A and C as well as other antioxidants such as lutein and zeaxanthin, which help prevent free radical damage and are linked to healthy vision and optimal eye health. Spaghetti squash is also rich in riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, and folate which are necessary for optimal cellular function. Thus, spaghetti squash is a great alternative to traditional spaghetti pasta noodles which have very limited nutrient content.
