Chipotle Meatballs

TMA'ed while listening to Stay Tough by Gravez, JMSN, Elhae

Okay real talk. I'm on my fitfam 2016, operation lose the extra protection, project summer body. Call it what you will, but I'm in this for the long haul. For the past few months I've been part of the 20/20 Lifestyles program. One of my biggest fears going into this was how am I going to be on a diet and still cook/eat good food? I am not your boiled chicken breast and steamed broccoli kind of girl. The program goes through an elimination style diet. Remove everything but protein and berries and then slowly add them back each week. The first week was a struggle but once I got vegetables, Chef T was back at it again.

A lot of times people associate dieting/lifestyle changes with boring food. This shouldn’t be the case! Otherwise, how will you maintain such a lifestyle? This recipe for chipotle meatballs is just one of my many attempts to show that food can look good, taste good and not make you feel like shit after you eat it. Have it with some spaghetti squash or Shirataki noodles and you're good to go. If you are doing grains, pasta still works.

Expect more random "healthy" recipes that align to my program on the blog. I eat what I cook so I have to cook what I can eat :)

Side note, I cook almost everything with avocado oil. It is a great high-heat cooking oil, healthy fat, high in vitamin E, etc. However, canola oil is a similar enough replacement.
