Woke up this morning feeling like p Diddy, ok not really. Woke up this morning and went in a two mile run. I’m beginning to wonder if I ever will not get out of breath when running. Oh well.
Tonight I am making turkey meatball subs. No sub for me, but plenty of meatballs and sauce. Trying primal variations on a recipe I used before for meatballs, gonna use ground almonds in place of bread crumbs. Gonna make the sauce myself. If it’s good, I’ll post the recipe.
Later today is also a p90x lifting day for me, chest and back.
Ok, so I made the turkey meatballs with from scratch tomato sauce (mostly). This is a primal friendly recipe so if you are looking for one, here it is:
2 lbs lean turkey meat
6 garlic cloves (you can substitute garlic powder in a pinch)
1/2 a white onion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
2 large eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup of ground almonds (not quite the consistency of almond flour, but not too big of chunks, these are replacing bread crumbs so they should be about the same size.
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Pre-heat oven to 375.
Put a pan on the stove top coat with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Form 41 1 oz meatballs. Put them in the pan with the oil about 12 at a time. Turn after 3 minutes or so. Take the meatballs and put them on a non greased cookie sheet.
Once you have all of them on a cookie sheet cook for appox 20 minutes at 375. After 20 minutes ensure that they are the proper internal temperature for turkey meat with a meat thermometer. Easy
1 large can of diced tomatoes (you can also use fresh tomatoes diced if you have them available)
1/2 a large white onion
2 garlic cloves (or garlic powder if you desire)
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1/4 tsp of salt
basil to taste
Heat olive oil in a pan. Add tomatoes (do not drain off liquid). Add all ingredients. Cook on medium heat covered until it reduces to a thick sauce. You may want to add more salt or garlic or basil to taste.
