Turkey is a good source of iron , zinc (very important for hormone production and the immune system), potassium and phosphorus 🦴. It is also a source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body's energy production.
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup psyllium husk
1 onion very finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
Oil for the pan
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
2. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well (I use my hands to make it easier).
3. Scoop 1-2 teaspoons of meat at a time and shape into meatballs. Place on the baking sheet.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
I pair these with zuchinni noodles and Raos spaghetti sauce (hands down the closest thing to homemade). You could also try a pesto like the picture above, I’ll post the recipes for the pest below.
Here are two ✌🏻ways that I make my pesto to adjust for my clients dietary needs:
NUT FREE PESTO;
1 cup fresh basil , packed
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated pecorino romano cheese (or other hard cheese such as parmesan)
1/4 cup roasted salted sunflower seeds
DAIRY FREE PESTO:
2 cups basil leaves
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw cashews (or, additional pumpkin seeds)
5-6 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
