- Nutrition Tips:
- Bolognese sauce is usually cooked with fatty meat with a lot of oil. Together with a big portion of spaghetti, a dish of Bolognese spaghetti contains 650-1100 Kcal. Using lean beef and replacing spaghetti with zoodles reduce the energy content by half: each portion contains only 393 Kcal; at the same time the protein content remains unchanged, thus is suitable for athletic people who aim at bulking and cutting.
- Lean beef is used in this recipe, which is minced by the Philips meat grounder. This lowers the fat and energy content, thus effectively control the cholesterol level and body weight. Iron in beef is essential for synthesis of red blood cell, which facilitate oxygen delivery to muscle and consequently enhance vitality and exercise performances.
- Replacing spaghetti with zucchini can greatly lessen the energy content and enhance nutrients. A bowl of spaghetti of 150g contains 237 Kcal; while same amount of cooked zucchini contains only 23 Kcal, which is cut down by 90%. Potassium in zucchini can reduce body edema and further lower the body weight.
