Clean Eating Spaghetti and Meatball Recipe - Kid Approved

Healthy, Clean, Quick Kid Approved Spaghetti Recipe


Last night I made the family Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs and added in a little veggie twist. The girls loved it and ate up every bite. This meal was quick, simple, and healthy. 

I don't make my girls different meals than what I eat, they eat what I eat or don't eat at all. To me it's important for my girls ti know the difference between what's healthy and what's a treat. I quiz them on what foods are healthy. I am ending the trend of obesity at a young age. Of course I let them have their treats and we have pizza and ice-cream nights but that's a treat. Their health is important to me and your kids health should be important to you too. I dare you to try this recipe and see what your kids think. If they are turned off by the veggies in the sauce then blend it up. Guarantee they won't even taste them. 

Ingredients: 
100% Whole Wheat Spaghetti Noodles
2 Cans of Organic Plain Tomato Sauce 
1 Zucchini
2 Whole Carrots
1 Container of Lean Ground Turkey
Italian Seasoning 
Garlic Powder
