When it comes to the protein source, feel free to use grass fed beef, elk, venison, or turkey. Each variety will offer a great source of protein, iron, zinc, niacin (vitamin B3) and vitamin B12.
I loving adding chopped cherry tomatoes to increase fiber and nutrition. Feel free to also incorporate bell peppers, carrots and squash – an easy way to incorporate more veggies! Just be sure to chop them into small, bite-sized pieces.
Herbs and spices can add a wonderful source of flavor to this dish. I prefer using fresh Thai basil, but feel free to use the other varieties of basil available, or add other fresh herbs such as thyme.
When choosing spaghetti noodles, I tend to reach for organic whole wheat noodles as it provides more fiber, vitamins and minerals when compared to white pasta noodles.
