Meatballs = Clean Protein & AMAZING Leftovers!!


I used our favorite turkey burger recipe and made a batch of meatballs for dinner tonight.  They were very moist, the perfect size (I ate 3!) & are stored away in fridge for clean lunches!!!  I paired them with a Napa cabbage salad (made a huge one so I have leftovers) with vinegar & homemade sweet potato fries (Charly’s fav!).  I also served sauerkraut on the side because I aim to get fermented foods into my body once a day.

HERE is the recipe I used for the meatballs.  It’s key to grate the onion & apple into the meat mixture.

1lb organic turkey burger
1 egg
1-2 small apples grated
1/2 onion grated
3 or so garlic cloves grated (I used minced)
Handful or so of gluten free oats
Coconut aminos
Salt / pepper

Mix the ingredients in a large bowl.  Use a large scoop & make small balls in a cake pan.  Add about 1/4 inch of water, cover with tin foil & bake at 400 deg for about 1 hour.  The last ten minutes or so take off the tinfoil to brown.

Eating clean is NOT hard!!  It takes a bit of prep but when you make large portions it ensures your lunches are clean, balanced & EASY!!!

Bison Meatballs – YUM!!!

Bison Meatballs

1 pound ground bison (grass-fed)

1 to 2 green onion, finely diced

1/2 sweet potato, finely diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground paprika

1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced

1/4 cup tomato paste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Oil a baking sheet with coconut oil, or you can use aluminum foil (nonstick) or parchment paper to avoid a mess.

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl.  Using a fork, or your hands, mix until everything is evenly combine.  Using a scoop or a large spoon, scoop evenly distributed meatballs onto prepared baking sheet.  I got about 12 to 15 meatballs.  Then put baking sheet in preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

Thanks to Paleo Multiply Delicious for this great recipe!
