Spaghetti and meatballs. A classic dish which comforts and warms both hearts and tummies during winter.
After being vegetarian for sixteen years and vegan for another two, I slowly introduced meat to my diet last year. Not much, one or two dishes a week – but boy – what a difference it made: Increase in energy, faster recovery from exercise, thicker hair and nails and balanced hormones.
Please make sure your meat is sustainably sourced. We buy only organically-raised, grass-fed meats, from a local producer with a sustainable farm model which has a biological and holistic view. Remember the animals’ diet and it’s living conditions create the end product.
Sorry, I always get a bit carried away writing about our fellow human creatures... Back to the recipe: Substituting spaghetti with spiralised zucchini adds extra nutrients plus fiber and cuts out the gluten.
Since this is meant to be a comforting, winter food, simply warm the zucchini in a pan for 1 minute.
Vitamin B6 and B12 does not exist in plant-based foods. Lean red meat is a natural source of many B vitamins as well as zinc and iron.
Heme iron (from animal source) is more easily absorbed than nonheme iron found in plants. The protein you get from red meat contains all the amino acids necessary to build muscle and repair tissue.
