Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Meat Sauce Clean Eating Recipe

Spaghetti Squash with Homemade Turkey Meat Sauce | Clean Eating Recipes

This was my Day #7 dinner on the Core De Force Eating Plan! What I liked best about this meal was how FILLING it was. I couldn’t believe how much food it was compared to the amount of calories and Portion Fix containers it uses.

That’s the thing about Spaghetti Squash and why it is so great. It’s extremely filling, but only about 30 calories per cup. So when you are done eating you feel satisfied, but know that you put something super healthy in your body that will fuel your results!

Today’s workout for Core De Force was an active rest day, and this meal definitely gave me what I need to start up again on Week #2 and have some energy to really put into my workouts.

This recipe took a little longer to prep than some of my other meals this week, but I also have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
