Here’s what you need:

  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic (or 4-5 cloves)
  • ½ bag of spinach
  • 1 16oz container of white mushrooms

  • Compliant cooking oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oregano
  • Basil

  1. Start by slicing your mushrooms and dicing your yellow onion.
  2. Next heat your pan up with your desired cooking oil on a medium heat. Once oil is heated through, add minced 1 TBSP garlic and diced onion. Saute until lightly brown.
  3. Add your mushrooms and cook until softened.
  4. Remove mixture from pan.
  5. Add a little more cooking oil and the remaining TSBP of minced garlic. Saute until the garlic until its lightly browned.
  6. At this point, add in the ground beef and break apart into pieces. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper into the meat while its cooking.
  7. Once meat is thoroughly browned, add in the mushroom, onion, and garlic mixture to the pan.
  8. Grab your tomato paste and disperse evenly into the mixture.
  9. Add the can of tomato sauce.
  10. Throw in the ½ bag of spinach.
  11. Turn down the heat and let the sauce come to a slight boil.
  12. Add a healthy dash of oregano and  basil, and season to taste with salt & pepper if needed.
  13. Serve on a bed of RAW zoodles.**

**Keeping the zoodles raw helps the mixture from becoming overly soggy.

***Also if planning this for meal prep, I highly recommend keeping meat and zoodles separate until consumption. The goal is for the meat mixture to cook the zoodles to again keep them from getting soggy.

****Zoodles can be purchased but can easily made (which IMO is the more economical answer). I am including a link to a metal spiralizer that I have recently fallen in love with.

Hi my name is Gabby, 28 and I work full-time as an accountant and I got my MBA part time while still working. I have always been one busy bee, even before graduate school. Post-undergrad, I worked at a public accounting firm AND was studying for my CPA. My first year post grad, working crazy hours and trying to pass a beast of exam, took a toll on my body, my mental capacity and brain power. I started the Whole30 journey in January 2016 and fell in love with how I felt. But let me tell you it took some adjustments like setting aside time to meal prep and realizing I may not be able to a make a certain recipe because I just don't have the time due to studying or busy season. A lot has changed since then, I've switched jobs and passed my exam, but one thing stays consistent...I stilllove to cook efficiently. I've yearned all my life to have that "I am sexy" confidence and with healthy eating and exercise, I'm getting there. I started this blog to help others who are in a similar position as me, who want to become the best version of themselves but with realistic expectations. For the busy moms, for the students, and for overworked accountant, these are my stories and recipes on how to live a simple easy whole life.
