Ingredients
Ground Turkey and Spinach
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
Roasted Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 spaghetti squash (about 3 pounds)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
Quick Marinara Sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Ground Turkey and Spinach

    Add the coconut oil to a hot pan. Once the oil is melted, add the turkey, Italian seasoning, sea salt, and black pepper. Use a fork to chop up the meat until it is browned and fully cooked. Mix in the fresh spinach and sauté until the spinach is wilted. Serve with spaghetti squash and marinara sauce (below).

  2. Roasted Spaghetti Squash

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

    Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds. Rub melted coconut oil on the fleshy side of the squash. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Place flesh side down on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes, depending upon the size of the squash.

    Once the squash is tender, remove from the oven and let it cool off for about 15 to 30 minutes. Use a fork to scrape the flesh. The flesh should become thin, long spaghetti strands.

  3. Quick Marinara Sauce

    Add coconut oil and garlic to a hot pan. Saute until garlic is brown, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper. Simmer until hot.
