Blazing Buffalo Turkey Meatballs

These mini meatballs are sure to please! Paleo and gluten free, try pairing with a simple, low carb sriracha sauce. Beware store bought sriracha though — many brands include high fructose corn syrup lurking just beneath the ingredient label.

The Mix

  • 1 lb of lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3- 1/2 salt-free hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 egg

The Final Cut

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Use a no-stick baking tray or cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil.
  • Blend ingredients in a large bowl until evenly combined.
  • Scoop a tablespoon amount and roll into balls. Yields 20-24 meatballs.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes (longer for a crispier texture).
  • Add toothpicks and enjoy!

 

Dippin’ and Sippin’

No New Year’s spread is complete without a killer dip. This pork bellies and spinach dip with steamed artichokes is the perfect pairing.

In a large bowl, stir up:

  • 1 cup of aioli
  • 5 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup of spinach
  • 1/4 cup of chopped onion
  • 2 oz seasoned pork bellies chopped
  • Pair with steamed artichokes and serve generously

 

The Good Stuff

Power up for 2019 with these antioxidant rich stuffed mushrooms. Filled with sauteed kale and bursting with flavor. Take 5 mushrooms and fill ’em up with:

  • 2 green onions
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • Handful of spinach
  • Handful of Kale
  • 1-2 tbsp Coconut oil

Throw it all together:

  • Remove mushroom stems and finely chop stems and green onions.
  • On medium heat, add coconut oil, turmeric, garlic and green onions to frying pan. Saute mushrooms. Add in ground beef and spinach.
  • Heat ½ -1 tbs. coconut oil in a separate pan. Add kale.
  • Stuff mushroom caps with ground beef mixture and place on top of the bed of kale. Bake for 5 minutes at 250*.
  • Serve, share, and love!

Pumpkin Nice Latte

We’d be on the naughty list for sure if we didn’t include a paleo friendly PSL! While this treat is not strictly Paleo (maple syrup makes us all want to bend the rules), it is a Paleo-inspired alternative to a traditional latte.

There’s nothing basic about this blend:

  • 2 cups fresh roast coffee
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp of pumpkin puree
