What’s for dinner?

Welcome to day 2!  I enjoyed my breakfast and lunch again today…success.  Feeling pretty good, too! This is what I’m having for dinner today, and leftovers for lunch tomorrow:

“Spaghetti” and Meat Sauce

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

For the sauce

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 jar of tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil, for garnish

Prepare spaghetti squash, I microwave mine (see note below). Then melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion and garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add ground turkey and brown the meat, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped tomato, tomato sauce, and Italian seasoning and stir to combine. Simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally. Serve over spaghetti squash with basil for garnish.

So, I make my spaghetti squash like my Mom taught me.  Cut it in half long ways.  Find a microwavable tray that you can put water in, and lay the spaghetti squash on top.  Cover it with saran wrap.  Microwave it for 10 minutes.  Be careful when you take it out; it’s going to be steamy and boiling!  Let it cool a minute, then fork out the insides.

I’m a 36 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
