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:

  • 90 grams lean, organic, grass-fed ground beef
  • 45 grams 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 cups fresh basil, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • dash of salt and pepper

Noodles

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. 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.
