Eating healthier is a conscious choice that is worthwhile for many reasons.
Whether you’re considering your overall health or are just looking at loosing weight, starting with diet is a great place to set your plan in motion.
Low Fat Meatballs Recipe
You can make a low fat meatball recipe either by using beef with a low amount of fat, or by using either a combination of 50% ground turkey and 50% low fat ground beef.
Meatballs can be a fun and easy meal. Using a meatball shaper makes preparing the perfect sized meatballs simple. Not to mention, you don’t have to touch the meat when you use a meat baller.
Add some tomato sauce to the meatballs for a tasty flavor, and garnish with some fresh herbs. You’ll have a freshly seasoned meatball that is perfect to eat to the side of a salad or atop some whole-grain pasta noodles.
Low fat meat is the key to this recipe’s success. It’s got great flavor without all the fat.
We happen to think that the key to a healthy life is eating right and learning to enjoy through moderation. We love chocolate cookies in our house, but we normally only make a 1/2 a batch so we don’t eat too many all at once. Chubby Chan: A Book About Eating in Moderation is a great resource to have if you want to get your eating under control.
These are great little meatballs, and they freeze well. You won’t feel deprived when you make spaghetti! Make a couple batches ahead of time, cook them up, cool them down in the refrigerator and then freeze them for about 20 minutes on baking sheets so they don’t stick together, and put in freezer safe bags.
- 1 pound 93% lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
