Chicken & Sweet potato meatball poppers

I’ve been on the hunt for new recipes to try.

I really loved this one I found from Unbound Wellness . I brought some for luch to work the next day and everyone who came in the back room said it smelled great and wanted to know what I was eating.

They were filling and tasted great.

  • 1 lb ground chicken (sub turkey)
  • 2 cups sweet potato, shredded (using a grater or food processor)
  • 1/3 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped  *** ( I used dried)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and thoroughly mix until well combined.
  3. Scoop the poppers (you should have 20-25) out using a small scoop, or just your hand, and place them evenly spaced on the baking sheet. Slightly flatten them by pushing them down with your hand.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping once. Remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.

Serve with guacamole, salsa, etc.

I mashed up 2 avocado, added garlic powder, the juice from the other half of lime, pepper.

 

I made some Zucchini Bacon Fritters to go with my meatballs. I found these on PaleoRunningMomma .

You need:

  • Shredded Zucchini
  • salt
  • bacon
  • coconut flour
  • egg
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 black pepper
  • bacon fat or coconut oil

 

 

Ground chicken + veggies = Healthy meals

Spring is almost here , despite the snow we just received here in CT.  That means lighter healthier meals. Load up on veggies!

Zucchini noodles & chicken meatballs

Processed with Snapseed.

This is one of my favorite go too meals. Its tasty & you can eat a lot of noodles without feeling guilty or bloated afterwards.

Just get a spiralizer & go to town on zucchini. I usually add a little bit of water or chicken broth plus the zucchini noodles in a pan and warm them up and let them get to my desired firmness.

Next the meatballs. I make them with chicken or turkey and use whatever veggies I have in the fridge. I almost always put spinach.

  • ground chicken or turkey
  • spinach
  • parmesan cheese
  • garlic
  • salt
  • pepper
  • onion

Mix together , form into balls, & put on a baking sheet and cook until done.

Once they are done I take jarred sauce, place in a pan and add the meatballs to the sauce. Heat until sauce is hot.

Add it to you zucchini noodles and eat it all up!

Chicken & veggie patties

ChickenVeggiePattiesSomething similar just bigger & flatter.

  • Ground chicken or turkey
  • bell peppers ( used yellow this time)
  • spinach
  • garlic
  • onion
  • salt
  • pepper
  • mushrooms

Mix together, form patties, place on a baking sheet and cook in the oven until done.

I made broccoli and baked fries as sides. Delish!

I don’t eat bread to often so no bun but sometimes do use a romaine lettuce leaf.
