One of the interesting things that I figured out while learning to cook and count calories and protein is that you can get ground beef with the same fat percentage as most ground turkey. In our house that made a very happy husband.
My husband just doesn’t love ground turkey he will eat it for me, but if we were having it all the time I think he would have gone off the deep end. I then found extra lean ground beef. Now the key is look at the fat percentage on the packaging. You want 93% fat free, it will cost more, but is worth it!
We switched from our large batch meals for the week being just soups and stews to include meatballs. I have a few meatball recipes that my family enjoys but I wanted to try something new and fun. This recipe has a real kick to it, so if you don’t like it spicy then bring down the Montreal Seasoning down to 1 tablespoon!
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
