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!

  • 1 1/2-2 lbs Lean Ground Turkey

  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional) I only put a little bit

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
