  1. Low Carb Spaghetti and Meatballs

    2015-6-14
    So you ditched that package of high-carb noodles from your pantry, now learn to love nature’s healthy noodles: spaghetti squash. If you haven’t yet tried spaghetti squash then you’re in for a real treat. A pile of tender spaghetti squash strands piled high with protein and veggie meatballs makes the perfect fitness meal.

    Servings: 12


    Here’s what you need…

    • 2 pounds lean, organic, grass-fed ground beef
    • 1 pound lean, sweet turkey sausage
    • 4 celery stalks, diced
    • 1 yellow onion, diced
    • 3 carrots, diced
    • 3 omega-3, eggs
    • 1/2 cup almond meal
    • 2 Tablespoons dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • dash of salt and pepper
    • Optional: handful of olives


    For the sauce:

    • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    • 1 can tomato paste
    • splash of white wine
    • 2 cups fresh basil, chopped
    • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
    • dash of salt and pepper


    For the noodles:

    • spaghetti squash


    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Wash spaghetti squash and poke all over with a knife. Place directly on the middle oven rack and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cooled, slice in half and remove the seeds. Scoop the spaghetti squash strands out with a large spoon, set aside in a bowl.
    2. Throw all of the meatball ingredients into a large bowl and mix with your hands. Form into large, golf ball sized meatballs.
    3. Combine all of the sauce ingredients into a medium bowl and mix well.
    4. Cook with Crockpot: Place the meatballs in your slow cooker. Cover with the sauce and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
      OR Cook with stovetop: Place meatballs in a large pot. Cover with sauce and cook, covered, over low heat for 2-3 hours.
    5. Place a scoop of spaghetti squash noodles on each plate, top with meatballs and some sauce and then throw on a few olives.
