Not really…I probably shouldn’t joke about choking. Just a Macy Gray reference.
Anyways…a lot of the recipes I’ve been into lately are healthy-ish. After all, I have a (mostly) desk job and I sit in my car 3-4 hours each day commuting to and from work. I exercise when I can, but honestly it doesn’t happen every day. I gotta fit in my pants somehow…so I guess not eating pizza every day is my only choice. #sadlife

Here is a go-to for us these days…meatballs. And yes, the recipe says “gluten-free” because of my BFF Celiac (cruel mom who named him that). Even though this recipe does not call for breadcrumbs, they are seriously awesome. To lighten them up, I make them with ground turkey, which I get in bulk from Costco (to save a little extra $$).
Once they’re done baking, I simmer them in some pasta sauce (nothing fancy, just dump a jar of store-bought pasta sauce in a saucepan and heat on the stove on medium-low, along with the finished meatballs). That way, the flavors of the sauce and meatballs marry together nicely (got that straight from Giada).
Serve them with whatever you fancy…rice, pasta, or, my personal favorite as of late, zucchini noodles!
