  1. 3lbs lean ground turkey
  2. 3 eggs, beaten
  3. 1 C rolled oats
  4. 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  5. 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  6. 1 C shredded carrots, chopped smaller
  7. 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  8. 3 T organic ketchup (or tomato sauce)
  9. 2 T Worcestershire sauce
  10. 2 T Italian Seasoning (or fresh herbs!)
  11. 1 T avocado oil
  12. 1 t salt (Himalayan is best!)
  13. 3/4 t black pepper (crushed is best!)
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Cover baking sheet with foil and coat with avocado oil cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. - Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Mix with hands. Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes.
  3. - Form into 1.5" balls and place on baking sheet. Cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
  4. -Sprinkle with salt. Let cool. Enjoy!
  1. Tip: Chop all of the veggies ahead of time. Also, feel free to add more veggies! Sometimes I use chopped mushrooms and spinach. 60 minutes IS a lot of time if you're making these to eat them right away. Plan smart and cook these bad boys ahead of time. The quantities are large because you should freeze half. 😉

These meatballs are simple, healthy, and delicious! Eat them with a couple eggs for breakfast, with quinoa and veggies for lunch, or over whole wheat noodles + pesto sauce (with a spinach and strawberry salad!) for dinner. Make a big batch and freeze half. So versatile. So filling. SO good!


I am a 30 year old California native who just moved back to the state after being away for 10 years. In that time, I've established a career that I love and spent the last 3 years completely invested in. I absolutely love teaching high school, but I have an overwhelming sense of regret that I let my love for my students and my desire to help them take away the time I could have spent with my mom and my husband. It is for this reason, plus my overwhelming desire for adventure, that I've asked my husband if we could move back to my home state. I'm coming back fulfilled and confident but completely broken as I've now lost both parents. I'm just trying to put back the pieces as I figure out how to honor both of them while truly being happy and moving forward. I'm essentially starting fresh, as a lifelong mourner. Each day is a tribute to them and to my marriage. I feel a rush of excitement and I know that though the change is HUGE, it is going to be incredible. My dream is to laugh every day, allow myself to grieve my losses, regain my relationship with God, and build a stronger relationship with my love. Cheers to new adventures!
