This paleo turkey meatball recipe is SUPER easy to make and sure to be a hit with adults and kids alike.
Dark turkey meat is more nutrient dense than white meat because it contains more iron, zinc, riboflavin, thiamine, and vitamins B6 and B12.
Iron alone is a huge player when it comes to health.
It’s responsible for enhancing oxygen transport in your body and it helps with energy production, so if you’re iron-deficient then you’re definitely not going to have the energy or stamina to do all the things you want to do, and do them well.
But you don’t have to be paleo to love these paleo turkey meatballs.
Because these paleo turkey meatballs are also packed with fresh herbs, and fresh herbs are essential to springtime health according to both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.
Spring is when you want to feel invigorated and excited, and fresh herbs add just enough pungency to these meatballs to enliven your senses and lift your spirits.
That said, you’ll probably want to make these paleo turkey meatballs a few times if you’re doing a Whole 30, because they’re that good.
Here’s the recipe for paleo turkey meatballs:
2 1/2 lbs ground dark turkey meat (organic, hormone-free, and pasture-raised whenever possible)
1-2 cups fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1-2 cups fresh dill, finely chopped
1 bunch green onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
About 20 grinds of fresh black pepper
1 tsp grey sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients until evenly mixed.
Roll mixture into balls, approximately 2 inches in diameter, and place evenly on baking sheet.
Bake in oven for 45 minutes, checking at 30 for readiness.
Serve with fresh salad, soup, on pasta or a sandwich (if that floats your boat), and enjoy!
But nourishment goes beyond nutrition.
