Spaghetti Squash with Meat & Mushroom Bolognese

Spaghetti Squash with Meat & Mushroom Bolognese

Prep Time: 25
Cook Time: 1 hour
Serves: 6 people 

One of my favorite winter meals, but to be honest I make it year round because it is so comforting and very satisfying. The meat sauce is a staple that I learned from my Pop and once you make it I promise your family will be begging for more!

Spaghetti squash is packed with fiber and vitamins like carotene and vitamin A, plus you do not need any special tools to make it into "spaghetti" you just use your fork.

Not ALL meat is created EQUAL

Not ALL meat is created EQUAL

The alarming state of grain-fed meat we face today all started when cows stopped grazing in the pastures where they would eat anything green found in the wild (i.e. what they would eat naturally). As soon as humans altered their diet we started to notice unhealthy practices take place. Comparing grass-fed vs grain-fed is like looking at two completely different foods! Seriously, they are NOT even in the same realm.

Oh M (grass-fed) GHEE

This is my new jam, I mean do you see that bright yellow color?? That rich yellow comes from the grass the cows were eating, craaazzy right! I always tell my clients to eat as much variety from the rainbow in order to get the most nutrient density in your diet. This GHEE is a perfect example! I am OBSESSED with the release of this new product, and you now can get it to too! (just click the pic below)

So what even is GHEE?

Simply ghee is clarified butter. It has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic countries like India and Asia. Ghee tastes different then butter, I would explain it as a stronger more nutty flavor. It enhances flavors especially with spices (think curries, sauces, Thai food, etc). It pairs very well with veggies and long simmered meats. Stay tuned for some recipes coming up!

Why is it good for us?

  1. VITAMIN A- an essential antioxidants as well as an immune system booster

  2. BUTYRATE- a short chain amino acid that helps digestion and feeds the GOOD bacteria in our guts

  3. CLA (CONJUGATED LINOLEUM ACID)- research studies show that it reduces inflammation and helps with cholesterol levels

  4. PLUS it has a significant VITAMIN D, E & K, I mean look at that color

Why use GHEE over BUTTER?

  • Ghee has a  higher smoke point then butter, meaning if you cook an oil at a higher smoke point then it can handle, it becomes oxidized
  • Ghee is essentially dairy free, it contains no casein or lactose
  • Ghee is more nutrient-dense then butter, (especially when using Bulletproof brand)
  • Ghee needs NO refrigeration, I love traveling with mine

How is GHEE made?

All GHEE is not created equal, you want cows that eat grass (hints the yellow color) and are healthy. The method of how it is heated, just like our food we cook, can destroy essential properties and nutrients. Below is a simple method explaining how Bulletproof creates this amazing product by using a slow Ayurvedic cooking method.
