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.

  • As most of you know, we’ve been ditching and switching most of the toxic products in our home over the past year and replacing them with better plant based products. The process felt overwhelming to start with but each month we tossed one thing and it made it feel so much more attainable. .
When people ask me where to start, I almost always say ditch the toxic laundry detergent and dryer sheets. This affects the entire family. Switching that means no more wearing clothes and rolling in sheets that are filled with chemicals 24/7. These chemicals are transferred onto your skin and your children’s skin and absorbed into your body throughout the entire day 😖
.
Scan your products with the @thinkdirty app and see how they rate. Most of them will have chemicals that have been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity, developmental/reproductive toxicity, endocrine disruption, cancer and so much more. That’s scary enough for me to just avoid all together. #knowbetterdobetter #gimmealltheplants
  • People make fun of Valentine’s Day but I love it. We don’t exchange gifts but I love the reminder to love and acknowledge the one you are with. Happy Valentine’s Day my love! Celebrating it with a throwback to the days when phone pictures were terrible quality, we were much younger, thinner, tanner, less wrinkles and spent our money traveling the world. I love you so much and this beautiful life we’ve built together 🖤
  • Some days I honestly feel like I’m drowning in all the things. I need to say this to myself everyday. And repeat it all day long. 🖤
  • Because we are still in denial over the @saints not being in the Super Bowl today! We will get em next year 🏈🖤
  • I love the month of love 💗Diffusing all my favorite reds, pinks and purples all month long! This month my mantra is “Hustle and Heart will set you apart” because I feel some big things in the works 💜
  • I love you so much. 💕
