Healthy Recipe Alternatives

When deciding to eat for health it is always nice to have some “healthy alternatives” to replace the old unhealthy habits.  Making substitutions in your sweeteners or starches can go a very long way.

Here is my FAVORITE DINNER of the WEEK!  Not only is it delicious (and truth be told I normally HATE ZUCCHINI which is why it took me this long to try) but this meal does exactly what it should for the body.  It not only NOURISHES the body but it helps HEAL the BODY!

Of course, the obvious reason why so healthy is because its a ton of vegetables but also because it doesn’t contain the sugar and starches that BOG down our systems and although may give us an “instant high of pleasure” but only leaves us crashing 30 minutes later.

Here is the RECIPE, haha or should I say Coach JA Style of  a RECIPE! (In other words, I don’t really measure, or follow a strict protocol, haha).



Coach JA Zucchini Noodles w/Spinach – 2 Servings

1 package of Grass fed 85/15% Ground Beef (you decide how much for your family)

2 Organic Zucchinis for just 2 people so add more the higher number of mouths to feed (Dirty Dozen Vegetable – SHOULD BE ORGANIC)

2 – 3 Handfuls of Organic Spinach (really skies the limit here if you love Spinach)

6 tbsp Nutritional Yeast – This is SECRET INGREDIENT to make it taste yummy plus good Vitamin B1!

1/2 Jar of LOW SUGAR based Pasta Sauce – I used “Monte Bene – Spicy Marinara”.  This isn’t necessarily a huge tomato based meal, so you don’t need much, plus it keeps the sugars low 🙂

Any SPICES you like to add to your Pasta Dishes – Garlic, Italian Seasoning, Himalayan Salt etc.

Instructions:  Cook the Ground Beef in your CastIron Pan (haha okay doesn’t have to be Cast Iron but SO MUCH MORE FLAVOR if you get away from T-Fal and non-stick poison :).  I actually leave the FAT and JUICES in the meat and do not drain it but up to you.  Add your Nutritional Yeast and Pasta Sauce into the meat along with your other spices you like.

Add your Zucchini Noodles (I got my Zucchini Spaghetti Maker at Amazon – link below) and Spinach to the pan and Voila!!  Only needing to heat up the Zucchini and Spinach so don’t overcook (let’s keep as many nutrients at optimal levels as we can)!
