WIAW 8/27 Clean & Easy Turkey Meatballs with Cilantro & Mushrooms

Hey all! 

Happy Wednesday and WIAW! I had some really Good Eats yesterday…and an awesome clean eating recipe.

Thanks Jenn for always hosting!

I started my morning with fasted cardio in my neighborhood and I was starving by the time I was done.

 

Breakfast

I made overnight oats the night before, put in a ton of pumpkin spice and cinnamon because its so good, a little peanut butter action on top, and some frozen berries that were thawed!

Lunch

For my second meal of the day, I ate a couple of eggs with hummus on top, a rice cake (not pictured) and half an apple with cinnamon sprinkled on top.

Before I worked my biceps and shoulders, I quickly came up with dinner. We had a package of lean ground turkey so I decided to make meatballs!

Clean & Easy Turkey Meatballs with Cilantro & Mushrooms
Ingredients
 
  • 1 1/2-2 lbs Lean Ground Turkey
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional) I only put a little bit
  • 1 large egg
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • Dash of cayenne and chili powder

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Sauté the minced garlic and finely chopped mushrooms in a pan with olive oil.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine turkey, cilantro, scallions, garlic and mushrooms, egg, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, cayenne and chili powder, and brown rice flour; mix gently with a fork.

  3. Step 3

    With hands, form mixture into balls, each equal to 2 level tablespoons; arrange on a skillet with olive oil (medium high heat) to cook 10 minutes on each side.

  4. Step 4

    Cover the meatballs with a glass lid for 10 minutes on medium low heat and then they should be ready!

Worked out as soon as I was done cooking! (Biceps and shoulders)

Then it was time to eat! I couldn’t wait to see how these tasted. I loved the cilantro and onion taste together. Made a fresh tasting meatball.

Dinner

I had two of my turkey meatballs, broccoli, quinoa, 1/2 sweet potato with almond butter and a Zevia!

Questions:

  • Do you ever do fasted cardio?
  • What body part is your favorite to work? I love biceps and shoulders day! Which was yesterday

    Ooh overnight oats, love them even though I haven’t had them in quite a while. Maybe tomorrow? Also quite a fan of turkey breast, gotta make me some turkey meatballs some day. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    I usually do fasted cardio a few mornings a week because I am so not hungry at 5am when I head to workout! I am always starving afterwards though 🙂
