Spinach with turkey bolognese is about as simple and cheap as a healthy dinner gets.
“The turkey sauce is a great source of protein that helps to build and maintain strong muscles while also burning fat,” says New York-based nutritionist Brigitte Zeitlin, R.D., owner of BZ Nutrition. “Plus, it’s a good source of the amino acid tryptophan, which helps boost our melatonin levels (the sleep hormone) helping you get the quality Z’s you need.”
And you may notice this is a pasta-free bolognese: We’re upping the nutrition factor by swapping the starch for greens, Zeitlin adds.
