Filled with antioxidant-rich spinach and smothered in a homemade pasta sauce, there’s no denying it, you’re gonna want these balls in your mouth. Conveniently, you can find the recipe for that sauce here. The rotini was a gluten-free rice pasta but these were good enough to eat as is, and we did.
Spinach Turkey Meatballs
I eyeball everything these days cause I love to live dangerously. Adjust to your tastes.
1 lb lean ground turkey
a couple handfuls of fresh chopped spinach
1 rounded tsp Italian seasoning
two cloves garlic
1/4 parmesan cheese, extra for garnishing
an egg, beaten
salt and pepper
Combine ingredients, mix, form the meatballs, brown them in a frying pan, finish in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Pour sauce around the meatballs so they soak up that deliciousness and don’t dry out. Or bake them… or cook through in the frying pan… whatever floats your boat.
These are not your average eggs; they’re Gordon Ramsey’s perfect scrambled eggs. Somewhere in an underground lair Paula Deen and Gordon Ramsey are conspiring against my paleo diet; the not-so-secret secret ingredient to these scrambled eggs is butter, lots of butter.

Breakfast must-haves to accompany my eggs included bacon – cause really whats the point of breakfast if there isn’t bacon – a heaping bowl of fruit salad, and a shot of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. The Union Jack coffee mug completes my English breakfast.
Fresh basa fillet, veggies, and seasonings teamed up in my oven for one fabulous fish taco feast.
Oven roasted that basa with the usual suspects – salt, pepper, and lemon juice – along with some cumin, cayenne, garlic, parsley, tomatoes, and onions.
In the sweet mango salsa there are roma tomatoes, sweet red onion, cilantro, salt and pepper, and lemon juice.
AND THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE!
But not all she ate. She definitely had a second taco.
