It's not a diet. It's a lifestyle change.

Turkey Meatballs

After watching two food documentaries – “Food Inc” and “Forks Over Knives” I decided to give up beef. If you haven’t seen these documentaries and you’re into clean eating, I strongly recommend them.Image

Turkey meatballs are a great alternative to beef and with the right seasoning, you won’t be able to taste the difference.

I didn’t measure my spices for these when I made them but I used about 1 tsp of all the spices and I used about 1-1 1/2 lbs of meat.

What you’ll need:

Extra lean ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1/4 cup chopped red onion 1/4 cup
Garlic Powder
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper
Chili flakes
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup dried cranberries
Feel free to use whatever other spices you like!


Mix all ingredients well. Form meatballs and bake for 20-25 mins on 350.
Serve with Spaghetti Squash and low sodium tomato sauce, or with steamed veggies!

Enjoy 🙂
