Happy November Everyone!!!
Time to get in the Holiday Spirit I know not everyone is as big of a fan as I am when it comes to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, but for me it’s the best time of the YEAR. (cliché I know).
I was thrilled when Allie said she wanted to run this morning, because my legs were CRAVING some pavement time. After all the
crap yummy treats I had last night I needed it! We did a speedy 5 mile run in less then 45 minutes and we walked each mile. We were just two chatty patty’s!
When I got back I knew I wanted to prep dinner, which meant I needed to make a QUICK breakfast. So I busted out my Vita-Mix and made another Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. Not only are these good, they are so EASY!
mmmm…smells like pumpkin
In love :>
Then it was dinner prep time! I have been craving spaghetti and meatballs for some time now and what better way to make them then in my crock pot!
I adapted my recipe from this website.
Healthy Turkey Meatballs In the CP
1 can of marinara sauce
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
1 teaspoon dried basil
salt to taste
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup dried parsley
2 egg whites
1 slice grainy whole wheat bread (crumble, place in a food processor, and pulse until you have 1/2 cup bread crumbs)
1/3 cup Ramona cheese
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
Combine tomatoes, vinegar, onions, garlic, Italian seasoning, basil, and salt in slow cooker. Turn on Low.
Combine remaining ingredients, except flour and oil.
Form into 1-inch balls. Dredge each ball in flour. Heat oil to medium in a large frying pan. Cook the meatballs in the pan until browned on all sides. Drain.
Transfer meatballs to slow cooker and mix into the sauce. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours.
Can’t wait to enjoy tonight!!!
I have some Holiday goals to share with you all at lunch, so stay tuned!
