Pizza Meatballs (Paleo, Whole30)

Wow you guys, I can’t believe it’s already day 23 of the January Whole30! This months has really flown by. If you’re doing Whole30 this month as well, give yourself a big ole pat on the back. We’re almost there! Just a full week left.

This weekend I hit the point where I was totally over it. It’s not that I’m bored of the food, because the food has been awesome. It’s just that I miss the freedom of going out to dinner, not having to research every single restaurant and then peruse their menu for Whole30 compliant options, while giving the server the 3rd degree about what is in the marinade. I miss maybe having a glass of wine with dinner and then coming home and having a piece of dark chocolate. And I really miss coming up with new ideas and recipe testing treats. I guess I really miss the balance. Real talk, I’m not going to say this has all been a walk in the park, there has been times that it’s been difficult.

But I’ve pushed through and I am so close to completing my first Whole30 I can almost taste it! I’m so determined to finish and do an amazing job at it. And if you’re feeling the same way, let’s push through it together. Making it this far and falling off now is like quitting a marathon in the 24th mile. The hardest part is over. Any uncomfortable physical symptoms are far behind us, and now the only thing remaining is the mental hangups and just wanting a treat, or a glass of wine or whatever your affliction is.

To help keep myself developing recipes, cause I love it, I am going to continue sharing only Whole30 compliant recipes through the end of January. So stop by for some new ideas and meal inspiration.

Today I am sharing these amazing little Pizza Meatballs. If this is a SWYPO for you then you may want to proceed with caution, everybody is different and everyone has their own triggers. I don’t consider this a SWYPO, it’s just a more flavorful meatball. Easy to make, they are a quick throw together meal perfect for those busy weekday nights.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp olive oil
3 slices prosciutto
1 lb ground turkey
⅓ cup marinara sauce*
¼ cup almond flour/meal
¼ cup nutritional yeast**
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
½ tsp salt
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder

Heat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium frying pan heat up the olive oil. Once hot, add in the prosciutto and cook until crispy, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside.

In a medium bowl add in the ground turkey, marinara sauce, almond flour, nutritional yeast, oregano, basil, salt, garlic powder and onion powder and mix until combined, without over mixing.

Crumble the prosciutto and add in with the turkey mix.

Use your hands to form the meat into balls, the size of ping pong balls, and add to the baking sheet. Continue until all meat is used.

Bake for 17 to 20 minutes until the meatballs are browned.

Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with more marinara sauce and enjoy!


*Check your ingredients, NO sugar!

**Omit if this is a SWYPO for you.
