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!!!

Meal in a Pan (YES ONE!)

This is a staple in our house because it literally makes no dishes, has fat, protein, carbs & GREENS all in one dish!!!


1lb turkey burger, beef or bison
1/2 large onion
5-6 garlic cloves
1-2 zucchini
Asparagus (or whatever veggies you have on hand)
1 tbsp coconut oil
Salt / pepper
Spices (whatever you like – I used organic onion powder)
Coconut aminos
1 can organic black beans

Chop & sauté the onion & garlic in the coconut oil for 4-5 minutes. Add in the ground turkey. Cook until almost brown. Add in chopped veggies, salt, pepper & spices. Mix together then add a dash of coconut aminos & the black beans. Simmer until the veggies are soft.

Ben loves to use organic tortilla chips to dip. I typically have leftover green salad in the fridge & put the meat /veggie mixture over that plus will indulge in a handful of chips. Charly just eats it as is.
