Super easy & delicious meatballs.

Canned artichoke hearts, drained & sautéed with onion, garlic, and jalapeño.

Combined with extra lean ground turkey, basil, parsley, & black pepper. Mashed and formed into balls, baked at 350 for 20 minutes.

Yum!

Paired with quinoa Alfredo noodles (next post) & a glass of white wine.

A Colorful Cleanse

After a long and stressful week full of traveling and poor food choices, this beautiful & light salad sure helped give reprieve to my poor stomach.

A much needed cleanse!

Lettuce, cukes, carrot, edamame, and Applegate farms turkey breast.

The Bodybuilder’s Favorite Meatballs

20140525-185718-68238213.jpg

Simple, healthy, and protein packed. Some of the best perks of these balls.

Oh, and they’re also delicious!

Lean ground turkey, oats, 1 egg, 2 egg whites, salsa, onion, garlic, chili powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, turmeric, & Italian seasoning!

Pretty much any spice in these will come out good, it just depends on the flavor you’re going for. To make it more Thai and less Italian, try some ginger!

I also love to add chopped red or green pepper and a little oil.

Cook on greased baking sheet in the oven, 450 for 15 minutes.

Great on their own as a snack, or in pasta, or on salads…

Taco Bowl

One of my favorite meals of all time.

Ground turkey, cooked in garlic and onion. With red pepper, adobo seasoning, and a little bit of coconut aminos.

This goes with brown rice (with basil and scallions), chopped tomato, lettuce, guacamole and salsa.

Great with tortilla chips.
