I owe a big thanks to my old friend, Katie, for introducing me to the Paleo lifestyle. It was through social media, namely Facebook and Instagram, that I would find myself salivating at her pictures and recipes. One day I finally messaged her with some questions, bought the book It Starts with Food, and the rest is history. Her blog, The Daily Diehl, continues to be a great source for Paleo inspiration and recipes and I encourage you to check it out for some new ideas. Her recipe for spaghetti squash with ground turkey meat (found here) is what inspired this post.
1 spaghetti squash
1 lb. grass-fed beef
1 28 oz. can Hunt’s tomato sauce (no salt added)
1 cup diced onion
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1 tablespoon chopped basil
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Prepare your spaghetti squash. Click here to see how.
Sauté your onion, garlic, and mushrooms in olive oil over medium-low heat, until onions become transparent.
Add grass-fed ground beef and allow to cook through.
Add tomato sauce and basil and allow to cook for about 5-10 minutes, then bring to a simmer.
Combine the sauce and spaghetti squash, add salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!
