Meatballs with Spaghetti...SQUASH

by Beth Warren April 21, 2020

Quite amazing how 

we’ve passed over

Passover (­čśĆ)

and the delicious whole food options we help guide our clients to eat,

on our BWN Method,

are still very much here beyond it.

That’s because I’ve engrained our plans to be fully flexible and accommodating to ALL real life scenarios,

and why it’s working so seamlessly

during our current #IRL challenges RN.

I talked on my stories yesterday

the ways you CAN achieve your weight and health goals 

despite the #covid19 challenges 

  1. Be flexible in your approach
  2. Accepting of the situation may not be your ideal 
  3. Following a plan that allows you to feel the least amount pressure 

It doesn’t mean your journey won’t entail hard work, 

because obviously anything worth changing takes active and intentional effort,

but you should be making it as real life and seamless as possible,

setting more realistic expectations,

being kind to yourself that everything won’t be 110% perfect,

but a lot less than that will work

to meet your goals (and not changing those, 

but the way you thought you may get there will shift unde r the circumstances)

There’s no need to “wait” for an ideal scenario that is not existing NOW,

And quite frankly,

I never understood that idea.

The one where some first time clients left my office asking,

“When should I start?”

And without fail, 

I said,

“You’re living right now, aren’t you?”

even before this whole #covid19 ,

and now the message is even more apropos 


What exactly are you waiting for to change?!


Meatballs with Spaghetti Squash

A delicious twist on a classic meatball dish.


1 lb ground veal

1 lb extra lean chopped beef

2 eggs

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 15 oz can tomato sauce (or 1 carton POM tomato sauce)

1/2 teaspoon cumin 

1/4 teaspoon pepper 

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1 tsp salt


In a medium glass mixing bowl, with gloves on your hands, fully mix in the eggs into the meats. Roll into individual meatballs. In a skillet on medium heat, pour the oil and add the meatballs. Brown the meatballs for about 15 minutes on all sides. Add in the sauce and spices. When the mixture hits a boil, turn down the flame and allow to simmer for about another 25 minutes. Serve over roasted spaghetti squash bowls (see blog for more details).
