On today’s episode, I’m showing you how to cook spaghetti squash in an oven, as well as this tasty spaghetti and meatballs recipe.
Seriously, if you like spaghetti and meatballs, you’re going to love this healthy low carb version that tastes just like the real thing.
This recipe was a request from a Live Lean TV viewer who asked me how to cook spaghetti squash.
So on today’s Brad’s Cookbook episode, I’m taking a traditional high carb meal, spaghetti and meatballs, and making it healthier, using higher quality ingredients.
We’re cooking Spaghetti Squash & Turkey Meatballs!
As Live Leaners, we don’t stop eating our favorite foods. We simply make better food decisions, by using higher quality ingredients, to make our favorite foods healthier.
If you’ve never cooked spaghetti squash before, you’ll be amazed at how much the texture and taste is similar to traditional spaghetti, without all the added carbohydrates and calories.
Here’s how the nutritional values stack up against each other.
And lets be real, who eats just 1 cup of traditional spaghetti?
This makes spaghetti squash an excellent healthy alternative to spaghetti as it has just a small percentage of the calories and carbohydrates, and includes a lot more nutrients, and is a good source of fiber.
We’re also going to add a coating filled with tasty spices to the turkey meatballs.
In the recipe video, I used organic whole grain sprouted bread in the coating, but you can also use ground almonds, almond meal, or almond flour.
If you’ve never heard of whole grain sprouted bread before, go check out my Food Wars episode on whole grain sprouted bread vs conventional whole wheat bread.
I also have a few other ground turkey recipes that you can use.
But for this tasty spaghetti and meatballs recipe, I wanted to share another turkey meatballs recipe with you.
Here are the ingredients and instructions on how to cook spaghetti squash, and make this healthy spaghetti and meatballs recipe.
We did it again.
We took another traditional, high calorie and high carb recipe, and made it healthy by using better quality ingredients.
Even though this may not seem like your traditional spaghetti and meatballs, I promise it’s delicious.
The spaghetti squash, the turkey meatballs, and the vegetables, add lots of nutrients, while also keeping this traditional pasta recipe lower in carbohydrates and calories.
Compare that to a traditional spaghetti and meatballs recipe with pasta sauce, and it would be upwards of 1,000 calories.
