Turkey & Veggie Spaghetti Squash; Food Prep


Food prepping on Sunday’s has quickly turned into a weekly tradition of mine. When working full time and trying to stay social, it’s easy to fall behind in your healthy food goals. By making a few go-to meal options that you can easily grab throughout the week, it really helps me stay on track, and also save some money!

A few weeks ago, I made Ground Turkey & Veggie Spaghetti Squash for lunch options throughout the week. I’ve been trying to cut down on my carb intake, and spaghetti squash is such an easy & tasty way to do so!

You’ll Need:

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb ground turkey (chicken or beef would also work)
  • 1 large green bell pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 3 large handfuls of raw spinach
  • 2 tablespoons of EVOO
  • Fresh minced garlic
  • 2.5 cups pasta sauce of your choice
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, red chili flakes – cater to your specific tastes

While your squash is cooking, brown your meat with desired seasonings & 1 tablespoon of EVOO. After it is browned, add the bell pepper, onion, spinach, minced garlic, and tomatoes. Cook on medium with 1 tablespoon on EVOO until soft. Add your sauce and allow it to simmer all together for about 10 minutes.


Split up the squash into 5 containers & top with 1/5th of the sauce mixture!



This will store in the fridge for a week.
