This is a place where we smash diet culture. Meaning, there is no room for fad diets, eliminating food groups, juice cleanses or glorifying "clean eating." This blog is meant to bring truth and shed light on the fact that ALL foods provide us with energy no matter what. Food is meant to be enjoyed and my goal is to ultimately remove the guilt and shame that diet culture may have taught you & nurture a positive relationship with food.

Under 30-Minutes Bison Bolognese

Bison Bolognese, aka one of my all time favorite weeknight meals that you can whip up in no time! Learn how to throw together a simple family meal in zero time!

Most people when they make bolognese they will use ground meat and tomato sauce and throw on a bed of spaghetti. Well, today I’ve mixed it up to get you more veggies into your dish. PLUS that extra bit of iron by using Bison meat! I think Bison adds a whole different level of flavor to those typical meat dishes. You can dress it up with all sorts of Italian/herbal seasonings too!

A couple of suggestions if you do not have fresh tomatoes on hand you can use a can of tomatoes. You can also swap out the cilantro for a different herbal blend if you’re not a fan! I’ve used an Italian blend by simply organics and it is absolutely delicious.

I typically buy grass-fed & finishes as that is my personal preference. I like to know where my meat comes from and how it has been handled. Other bison works well too but I don’t know if it is as tasty as the grass-fed goodness that’s out there! If you try it with something else please let me know!

My suggestion is to double the batch and you can have the leftovers for your lunches throughout the week! Find the Recipe Below!
