21 Day Fix Extreme Recipe: Turkey Meatballs

Week 2 is almost a wrap and yes, I am still SORE!!!! I remember this feeling from when I first started my fitness journey almost a year ago and I know the sore muscles are worth the pain and simply a result of using different muscle groups!

Like Autumn always says:

“You can be sore today or sorry tomorrow!”

But all in all I am really enjoying this workout program and so are all my challengers!!!! One girl lost 4 pounds in just the first week…another 2 inches just around her waist…and most are feeling better and more energized (and sore!!!) than than ever before!!! I love surrounding myself with these like-minded people!!!

We tossed the Turkey Meatballs into the rotation this week and they sure were a crowd pleaser! I love that they are gluten free, full of flavor and freeze well – extra bonus!!!! They also made the perfect lunch on the go when my little guy and I were hanging out in the waiting room during my daughter’s gymnastics class – much better option than goldfish!!!

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED:

1.5lbs raw 93% lean ground turkey breast

1 tsp. sea salt or Himalayan salt (Mineralize)

1 tsp. dry mustard

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 large egg

3/4 cup quick cooking oats

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

12 fresh parsley sprigs, finely chopped

1 Tbsp. tomato sauce, no sugar added

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C)

2. Lightly coat large baking sheet with spray; set aside

3. Combine turkey, salt, mustard, paprika, egg, oats, garlic, parsley and tomato sauce in a large bowl; mix well by hand. (confession – I totally dislike touching raw meat…so I used this little gadget from pampered chef that you use when browning meat and it worked PERFECTLY!)

4. Roll mixture into 30 1-inch meatballs. Place on prepared baking sheet. (Again…touching meat issue…I used a cookie scooper and packed it against the side of the bowl, scooped out and waahla – perfectly sized, evenly cooked meatballs!!)

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle.

6. Serve with your favorite sides!!!

NOTE: I doubled the recipe so I could freeze half for another week.

Let me know if you give them a try!!!

      Emily- from the 21 Day Fix Extreme food plan (the guide) it states that it makes 30 meatballs, and 5 meatballs counts as one serving (1 red, 1/2 yellow).
