Turkey Meatballs


These have been adapted from the 21 Day Fix Extreme booklet.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1.25 lbs of 99% fat free ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup quick cooking oats (or gluten free oats)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dry mustard 
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 12 fresh parsley sprigs, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce (no sugar added)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Lightly coat large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well by hand.
  4. Roll mixture into 30 1 inch meatballs and place on baking sheet.
  5. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle. 

These meatballs are great to cook ahead of time or to make a double batch and freeze some! They serve great over spaghetti squash and tomato sauce, on a salad or with some brown rice and your favorite veggies!

5 meatballs = 1 red and 1/2 yellow.

Sweet Potato Hashbrowns


Ingredients
  • 1/2 sweet potato, grated (I used a cheese grater)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Pinch of sea salf
Directions
  1. Combine ingredients in a skillet over medium high heat
  2. Flip/stir once every minute or two. I cook mine about 8-9 minutes total.
  3. Cook until desired texture.
These aren't going to get super crispy or anything, but they taste AMAZING.

If you are following the 21 Day Fix or the 21 Day Fix Extreme, measure grated sweet potato in a yellow container before cooking.

1 yellow. 1 tsp.

INGREDIENTS

Optional

I like to have this salad cold and only warm up the chicken. I precook everything in advance and put each salad into a tupperware for each day's lunch!

  • 1 Yellow
  • 1 Green
