Bolognese Sauce with Spaghetti Squash or Pasta

This is absolutely my favourite pasta sauce. It is so full of flavour and is really easy to make. It’s a great recipe to double or triple for meal prep or to freeze for busy days ahead. You can add it to spaghetti squash for a lower carb option or even just eat it on its own, it’s that good!

Roasting veggies is a great way to add flavour, mask any bitterness and improve digestibility.  Eating a plate full of veggies for lunch or dinner feels so nourishing and leaves you feeling energized and content.  Add egg or meat for added protein.

Baked Sausage Pasta

Baked Sausage Pasta

This pasta is a part of my Refined Sugar Free Program. But I’m sure you’re thinking, “but it has sausage, cheese, and pasta how could it be healthy?!” Well it’s all about balance; if you want to have something rich and carb heavy, then it is important to balance the rest of your day with low carb meals and I’ve shown an example of this in the program. Sausage, tomatoes, peppers, cheese and mushrooms are all full of nutrients, so as long as your portions are realistic, then enjoy it guilt free!

This soup is full of fall vegetables that will feed the good bacteria in your gut! There is the option to make it super low carb by leaving out the wild rice or barely, but even with them, it's still relatively low carb, win-win! Most, if not all of these veggies can be found at your local farmers market too! Cozy up with a bowl and enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

Homemade Bone Broth

Homemade Bone Broth

While I don't think bone broth is a "cure-all" for your ailments, I do believe it creates amazing depth of flavour to any soup. If you have an issue with garlic and/or onion or you eat a low FODMAP diet, then this is also a great alternative to store bought broth or stock.
