I started the 21 Day Fix with 11 others in the test group on Monday!

While I’m sworn to secrecy on the meals and workouts on the plan, I wanted to share a yummy turkey meatball healthy recipe I tried it last week along with some of my favorite meals!

I’m linking up with Megan for What I Ate Wednesday as well — if you are a recipe hog like me, check out her blog for everyone that links up!
IMG_4144I have started a new morning routine lately, and I’m loving it. I wake up, focus on my goals for 3 minutes and pray another 5.  Why 8 minutes? It’s my iPhone snooze time.

Then, I get out of bed and go make breakfast….half asleep. I have loved having eggs and oats lately. It goes against my Whole 30, but I haven’t had any digestion or skin problems with having oats in the morning. *knock on wood*

After breakfast, I read my Bible study or catch up on emails while my breakfast settles. Then it’s workout time!

Turkey Meatballs Healthy Recipe

You’d never know these Turkey Meatballs are healthy! They are so easy to make and yummy. Pair with a side of frozen veggies or mashed cauliflower.

Yummy Turkey Meatballs

Ingredients: 
1.5 lb turkey
1 cup oats
3 T of canned dice tomatoes (I bought the chili seasoned for a spicy effect)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 table spoon italian spice
1/2 table spoon chopped garlic
1 egg
To Prepare:
Mix all of the ingredients together and turn the oven to 425 degrees. Form the mixture into balls and place on a cookie sheet. It should make 18-20 turkey meatballs. Place on the cookie sheet and cook for 20 minutes.
I had two of these bad boys (hehe I know…2, get your mind out of the gutter!). I used a little hot sauce too. Yum!
Focusing on what I will eat throughout the week is the only way I can eat enough to lose fat. If I don’t, I don’t eat enough and graze throughout the day.  I also find having protein with each meal really helps me stay full and have a steady amount of energy. Plus, all of these foods (even the hot sauce) help me to lose fat! :) Score!!

What’s your morning routine?

Have you ever had a Turkey Meatball?

  1. I’d like to have these for lunch one day this week with a side of roasted squash. How many containers is this recipe and how many meatballs am I allowed to have? Thanks for any help with this. I’m trying to keep my weekly menu interesting so I stick with this. I’m doing 21DFX by the way.

    1. Hey Shante! 2 Meatballs are 1/2 green 1 red and 1/2 a yellow. The roasted squash would be a Green :) How is the 21 Day Fix going so far? Are you working with a coach for extra accountability?

  2. How big do you make the meatballs? I am not much of a cook so I have no idea how much I should use to make a standard sized meatball. So having some kind of exact measurement would be great. Like is each meatball a TBSP (just for example) worth of mixture to make.

    1. I do about a heaping spoonful and then roll into a ball. You should have 18-20 meatballs from the batter…so about 1.5 TBSP or 1/20 of the total mixture in the bowl. :)
