Healthy Meatballs by Jo

Sometimes it’s difficult to find ideas for what to eat or to vary the dishes. If you want to stay focus on your sport and diet, there are much we cannot eat daily and are pretty limited with the ingredients (that are easy, fast and as good) . However we are not limited with the variations of the healthy food.

If you are as me or us as a family, we need something that is easy and quick to make. Even though I am still at home with my daughter I cannot find the time preparing the dinner in the afternoon. There is so much else I need to do during the day that our dinner is getting ready at the same time as if I was working full time.

Unfortunately when you are hungry and therefore in a hurry you dont take time to check for new recipes or starting to be creative with the dishes and it seems you are eating the same thing day in and day out…in the end you crack for that burger… not anymore 😉

Once a week, I will share with you my recipes that you can easy do in your kitchen without adding sugar or sauces. Just simple dishes for everyday dinner or lunch.

We often buy minced beef-meat that contains much less fat that a mixed minced meat. The issue when you cook it is that is becomes very dry and not very tasty. I have been trying out different ideas on how to keep it good and here is one of them..

  • 500gr minced beef-meat
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 1 dl parsley
  • 1 tsp Himalaya salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Add the minced meat in a bowl together with 1 or 2 eggs, depending on how much meat is used, try first with one and see the consistency. Cut the onion in small cubes and chop the parsley then add to the meat. Finish off with salt and pepper

Roll the meat into small balls (you decide the size). Add some coconut oil in the pan and start frying the meatballs. on low heat to avoid burning the meat.

Keep them covered or in the oven under low temperature to avoid getting them dry.

If you don’t like parsley, feel free to use or add any other ingredients for more different taste or just leave it natural. Serve with vegetables and or rice while adding some olive oil.


Bon appétit 😉
