If you couldn’t tell from my last Wordless Wednesday post, our home is experiencing some technical difficulties when it comes to food. I’m pretty sure my husband is gluten intolerant and for myself? It’s dairy. I have heard about the Paleo lifestyle for a while now and for the last week I have taken it upon our family to give it a try. (We’re gluten and dairy free, may as well.)
When you think Paleo, think about how a caveman would eat. There are no pre-packaged (and heavily processed) foods, herbs are fine but grains are not. There is a debate on quinoa and if it’s truly paleo or not, personally I eat still. That and rice. We’re not 100%. Anything is better then nothing.
Paleo Turkey Veg Meatballs
1lb ground turkey
1 1/2-2 cups of baby carrots (depending on how you would like your texture).
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 tsp garlic salt
1 red bell pepper
1 tbsp ground parsley
2 tbsp Italian seasoning
Dash of pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine everything but the ground turkey to a food processor (in my case I used the Ninja blender) and pulse until no big chunks are left. You may have to stir in between to have a common texture.
Add the newly chopped ingredients to the turkey, and mix together.
Form meatballs. For this I took my 1 1/2 tablespoon, scooped the mixture and dropped on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy.

This recipe is incredibly fast and easy (not to mention delicious). A perfect week night meal. I served it with a broccoli salad, but this would be a great adaptation for meatballs in marinara sauce.
