Body Builder Meals – Un-Meatballs

I like these “un-meatballs” because I don’t like getting my hands all dirty forming meatballs and it’s also very time-consuming. And, I usually end up breaking my meatballs apart anyway when I eat them, so I thought I’d just skip a couple steps!

In addition, these are a quick and easy meal that you can keep in the freezer and microwave in minutes!



1 Pound Extra Lean Ground Turkey (the kind I buy has 4 grams of fat in a pound)
2 Stalks Celery
1 Sweet Onion
2 Tablespoons Chopped Garlic
Adobo Spice

Dice celery and onion. Combine celery and onion with chopped garlic and add to turkey in pan.  Cook turkey until browned and thoroughly cooked through.  Makes 3 portions.

    LOL! I avoid meatballs for the same reason (ie yucky hands). I will have to try this out. I need to shake up my proteins. I do eggs and cottage cheese or yogurt, but most of my meat meals are chicken. Kinda boring after awhile.

      Yes! The day I discovered ground turkey was a wonderful day! I use it so much it’s not even funny. Today I’m eating chili, last week it was tacos, taco salad, and taco/scrambled egg burritos. It’s super versatile.
