Crock Pot Healthy Italian

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
Serves 8

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!

Question: Do you have any Holiday goals????

  1. I was able tto find good info from yur articles.

  2. Its such as you read my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you simply can do with a few percent to power the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
