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.

  • Our little guy’s nursery is almost ready, just a few more finishing touches to the other side of the room and we will be done. It’s surreal to walk in this room and imagine him here. We decided to go a little more minimalistic this time around and this convertible crib from @deltachildren was the perfect addition. We also got a dual sided crib and toddler mattress to go along with it from them. Both are super affordable and I’ll be sharing more in my stories including links on where you can purchase. Only about 6 more weeks and you’ll be here sweet boy 💙 #33weekspregnant #sponsored #deltachildren
  • Holy moly 7 more weeks until our due date! The second half of this pregnancy has been flying by and I’ve never been so content to be so extremely achy and tired! Pregnancy after miscarriage definitely gives you this heightened appreciation for each passing day. I have this enormous amount of gratitude that God entrusted me with this perfect rainbow baby! 💙🌈 #33weekspregnant #rainbowbaby #pregnancyafterloss
  • I see so many littles heading back to school and it’s making me realize Teagan starts pre-school in just a few weeks and I have to make sure she’s equipped with all the essentials to keep her healthy. But first, tonight I’ll be going live at 9pm EST to talk all about the essential oils I’ve been using for pregnancy, preparing for labor and ones that will be imperative postpartum. I’ve already gotten so many amazing questions but feel free to leave more below! Essential oils can be super confusing at first but I hope I make it easier through these lives to see that they are actually the easiest thing to add into your toolkit! 💕 #32weekspregnant

  • Did you know that your sense of smell is the only sense that stimulates your limbic system? It’s the sense that is most closely connected to memory and smell is highly emotive.
