It’s easy to elevate canned spaghetti sauce with a few simple additions!
For the longest time, I felt ashamed of buying canned spaghetti sauce. There’s no denying that homemade, hand-crafted spaghetti sauce is usually going to be the best. But…sometimes I just don’t have the time to fuss with it! And if it’s a choice between ordering takeout or making a semi-from-scratch meal, I’ll choose the latter 9 times out of 10.
The good news is that canned spaghetti sauce doesn’t have to be boring! With a few quick and easy additions, you can get it tasting more fresh and interesting.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been dealing with unexplained chronic fatigue since April. It’s been really frustrating having to plan my work/life around low energy. Some days I have to go and lie down in bed after making breakfast. ?
I went to see a naturopath doctor, and she had me go and get blood work done. I had never had my blood drawn to my knowledge, so I was a bit nervous about the whole operation. But it was over in no time! The worst part was the rubber band that the lady tied tightly around my arm.
Last week I got the test results back. I’m not sure what to make of everything…my appointment with the naturopath isn’t until next week. But I did learn a few interesting things:
- I don’t have the MTHFR gene mutation. Hooray! That means I can process B vitamins normally.
- My vitamin D levels were on the low end. This is after having supplemented with cod liver oil regularly, and getting out in the sun when I can. I wonder what my levels were during the winter…
- I have really low levels of CoQ10. I’m still learning about what exactly CoQ10 is. But as far as I can tell it’s an important antioxidant that all cells in the body need.
It will be really interesting to get my doctor’s view on all of this, and start on a treatment plan. I am so sick of not having any energy!
So that’s what I have for you this week. You can follow me on Instagram is you’d like more updates about what’s going on in our life. I occasionally talk about health-related stuff on my stories.
How’s summer going for you so far? Did you have a fun 4th?
