In a small bowl, use a fork to scramble the eggs with the coconut aminos. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes. Add 2 teaspoons coconut oil and when it's melted, pour in the eggs and let them spread like a pancake. Reduce the heat to medium and cover with a lid, letting the eggs cook until they're set and beginning to brown on the bottom, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and lightly brown the other side. Remove the eggs from the pan and cut into strips with a sharp knife.
Using the same pan, increase heat to medium-high and add 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Saute the onion and snap peas until they're crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add the spaghetti squash, tofu, and cooked egg to the pan and cook until heated through, stirring often, about 3 minutes.
While the veggies are cooking, place lime juice, garlic, coconut amigos, ginger, vinegar, nut butter, and cayenne in the bowl of a food processor and whirl until well-blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber scraper, then add the coconut milk. Process until it's blended and smooth.
When the veggies have cooked, add the Sunshine Sauce to the pan and stir-fry until everything is well-blended and hot. Sprinkle each serving with desired garnishes.
