You know it’s bad when you stare at your computer with no funny interesting thoughts to type about. It’s been a week since my last post, sorry folks the days and the week got away from me, and I still have nothing good to share. Too much going on in my life and my mom was in town visiting and helping us out with the little monkeys since they were out of school. Summer is here for them and it so makes me wish I was out for the summer too. Remember those days?!! Ahhhh, yes those days when you were younger and got to run around and do fun summer things! I couldn’t wait for the last day of school because summers always meant staying up late, going to summer camp, 4th of July, going to the beach, and basically all things fun….I miss those days. I wish they had summer camp from adult life too. Where you don’t have to go to work and avoid all things involving being a grown-up. Wouldn’t that be fun!? I dropped the girls off at their first day of summer camp this morning and I looked at their activities for the day and I turned to the camp counselor and asked if I could pass for a 4 year old so I could stay. She laughed, I think she thought I was kidding but I so wasn’t!!! I planned to post these yummy meatballs last week but like I said the week got away from me. So here I am sharing them with you today. These were adapted from one of my very favorite Paleo yummy blogs, Nom Nom Paleo. Love her! Love her recipes! And in my honest opinion I think she is superwoman! She is a mommy, works, and finds time to blog every day about all the things she eats in her Paleo eating day. Yes, she pretty much rocks. She calls these the WODS. I call them….well meatballs. I used 100% grass-fed bison in these little balls of delight but you can use whatever you have and prefer. I’m sure ground chicken would be yummy too. I just happen to have bison, but I’ve also tried these with grass-fed beef and they were yummy too. I made some slight changes to the recipe based off what was in my cabinet and frig at the time. These are pretty yummy and pretty easy to make and even more easy to pop in your mouth for a quick protein boost. Trust me, I did this several mornings after a killer WOD at the gym because they also have my very favorite thing….sweet potatoes! So I got my protein and carb all in one. Easy right? Especially after coming home from the gym and having a short window of time. Love that when that happens.
If you are looking for a great resource for 100% grass-fed bison you must try the bison from Wild Idea Buffalo.
1 pound ground bison (grass-fed)
1 to 2 green onion, finely diced
1/2 sweet potato, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
1/4 cup tomato paste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Oil a baking sheet with coconut oil, or you can use aluminum foil (nonstick) or parchment paper to avoid a mess.
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl. Using a fork, or your hands, mix until everything is evenly combine. Using a scoop or a large spoon, scoop evenly distibuted meatballs onto prepared baking sheet. I got about 12 to 15 meatballs. Then put baking sheet in preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
Serve warm….yummy! I served over the recent broccoli recipe in the above photo.
