So here it is, an easy mouth-watering combination of lean turkey with two of my faves, spinach and feta. Yes, I know it looks pink because it is raw. The husband said the photo looked like the balls had pink frosting on them. No, they are raw, ready to go in the oven. This is how it went down:
2 packages of lean ground turkey
2 cups chopped fresh spinach, I chopped in a blender in 20 seconds
1 small container of reduced fat feta cheese
1 tsp of garlic/parsley powder
salt & pepper to taste
Mix all of this up in a big bowl, use your clean hands because it is easier than using a spoon and you have to make balls anyway. Form into balls and place the balls in a lightly greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes or until done.
They smell so good while cooking. Such a simple and delicious way to get lean protein, veges, and some yum yum with the feta.
Let me know how your balls turn out!
March is the perfect time to incorporate more green in your life and when I mean green, it is the green that we eat!! Today’s challenge, day 7 of the 29 day challenge, will include the next 5 days. The challenge is to add a little more green in the diet such as these beautiful little brussels 🙂 We all know there are so many health benefits of adding more vegetables in our daily nutrition but are you actually doing it? I challenge you to add 1 more vegetable than you normally do every day for the next 5 days. Try something new to make it interesting and don’t complicate it. Just go to the grocery and you will find so many beautiful plants sitting quietly in the produce just waiting to be bagged. All it takes is a good wash, a chop or two, a little EVOO, sea salt and pepper and roast for about 15 – 20 minutes on 400 degrees as I did with these delicious sprouts. I would love to see your photos, tag me on IG or Twitter at @nthefitzone or comment here or on my facebook page.
