Healthy Turkey Meatballs

September, I have decided, I am declaring, that September will be the month that I get my eating together! Which means, healthy recipes! My first meal of September is this delicious spread of turkey meatballs. They are one ingredient away from whole 30 approved! I enjoyed it, and I hope you do too! Here is the recipe!

Ingredients and Equipment

  • Ground Turkey 2 pounds
  • Lemon 1
  • Capers 1 tbs
  • Minced Garlic 2 tbs
  • Thyme 1 tbs
  • Oregano 1 tbs
  • Salt and Pepper 2 tsp each
  • Almond flour 2/3 cups
  • Eggs 2
  • Worcestershire sauce 1 tbs
  • Primal Kitchen Classic BBQ Sauce unsweetened (or regular bbq sauce if you are not making it super healthy!) 1 bottle
  • Baking Sheet
  • Foil


Step 1: Season the Turkey

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground turkey, minced garlic, capers, thyme, Oregon, almond flour, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix the ingredients together using your hands or a mixing spoon until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed. The Worcestershire sauce is what keeps these from being completely whole 30, so if you want to leave it out you can!

Step 2: Roll and Bake

Using your hands, roll out the turkey mixture into golf ball sized meat balls. Line a backing sheet with foil, and then place the meatballs on the baking sheet with about 1 inch space between each. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. It took my meatballs around 30 minutes to cook all the way through!

Step 3: Cover and Enjoy

Once your meatballs are done, let them cool for about 10 minutes and then place the meatballs in a bowl and cover them with the barbeque! I loved this one from primal kitchen because it is free of added sugars and it is whole 30 approved which means it is super healthy. If you are going for a cheat meal, just use any bbq sauce of your choice!

Thank you!

Journaling: What are the Benefits? What to Journal About? and How We Can Make it a Habit?

What do you do when you feel as if you cannot hold your emotions within you? When you are a cup, ill equipped to hold the volume of your feelings, and at any moment, it can all come spilling out creating a mess that would be more than a little inconvenient to clean? For me, the answer is I write it down. Since I was a child, I have loved to write, and very early on I realized that when I put my ideas into words, even if I was unclear when I started, by the time I finished, I would have more clarity than when I began. As an adult, I can add personal color to the widely accepted and research backed consensus that journaling can be life changing. When I post on my instagram story about my journal, I’ve had several people ask me how I journal and what I journal about. I am here to offer research, ideas, and resources for those who wish to know more and begin to journal.
