Easy Meatball Recipe

Tags:     

Since I am on a new journey to restore my health with what seems like an impossible diet I figured I would document it as best I could and share it right here on my piece of the internet. Every Monday I will post a new recipe that I have come up with as several people have asked me to post any recipes I love. I usually find recipes that sound good to me and then tweak them to work for my dietary needs. So, it is truly a trial and error journey.

Last week I made these really great meatballs in hopes of having an easy little snack for the entire week. With this new diet, I had to make sure my meatballs fit the Autoimmune Protocol which is basically a stricter version of the paleo diet. This means that these meatballs have no dairy, grains, eggs or tomatoes. Disclaimer: I do eat eggs at breakfast but avoid them in anything else.

These meatballs held together great without any bread, cheese or egg to bind it but you can of course add them in if your diet allows.

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey

1 lb ground bison

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

1 ¼ Tbsp of Basil, Oregano, Parsley. I did equal parts of each but break it up however you like.

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F.

With hands, mix meat and all other ingredients together until well mixed.

Form meat into 1-1/2” meatballs and place on baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Sorry for the low-quality photos, one is a screenshot from a video and the others were after thoughts. I didn’t think to document the process until I was about over but the taste and ease of this recipe should make up for that. I will do better with my planning for photos next week 🙂 I ate them plain and then throughout the week as a protein on my salads.

what do you think?

  • Saturday Bumpday! 🤰🏼 17 weeks today! I posted on my blog yesterday all about finding out we were pregnant, a little about my NIPT with @maternit21plus , and our gender reveal video and more pictures!! The link is in my bio 💙
  • This little handsome guy turned T W O ✌🏼 yesterday and we get to celebrate him this weekend! It’s safe to say he’s really got the whole stud number down in his 2 short years. I feel so grateful to have friends with kids the same age and I love getting to watch them grow together! Happy Birthday sweet Camden! 🎉💙 #ittakesavillage
  • S I X T E E N  W E E K S today! Time seems to be flying by with this little boy! 💙 Cary and I each have two boy names we love, sadly they aren’t the same ones. We agreed on our little gal, Teagan, so quickly so please HELP and comment below and leave your suggestions on baby boy names! 💙
  • They haven’t yet mastered how to show each other affection! Teagan’s like “don’t touch me, boy!” And Cam’s like “get off my fire truck 🚒 “ I swear watching these two grow up together has been one of the highlights for me 😍
  • I’m afraid to say it but I feel like I might be turning a page slowly with this Hyperemesis. While that part of pregnancy has completely sucked, taken the joy out of my days, and made being a good mom to Teagan really difficult, there is one thing that has made this pregnancy so much easier and that’s @maternit21plus 💙 their non invasive prenatal test has taken some stress out of my days knowing my sweet little boy is healthy and I don’t have to worry about any surprises in his genetic health come September. That is getting me through each hard day of this pregnancy. We can’t wait to meet you little guy 💙💙 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • I’m 15 weeks pregnant today. I don’t even know how that’s possible! People aren’t lying when they said time goes by so quickly the second pregnancy. Feeling so grateful to be growing this little guy and chasing my sweet girl around🤰🏼

  • I don’t know how I survived life or motherhood before I started using oils. I turn to these products for my energy boost, to give me a good nights sleep, for a little extra confidence, to tame toddler tantrums, to support a healthy pregnancy and so much more. I was so skeptical but I jumped in with both feet and we’ve never looked back 🌿
  • Those moments when you really hope your child’s sass will help them lead a company and not a prison gang 🤦🏼‍♀️
