Spinach and Artichoke Meatballs

Paleo Whole30 Spinach Artichoke Meatballs
 
Can you believe Super Bowl is almost here? Those of you who aren’t into sports are probably like, “Yes, and I don’t give a fuuuuuuu—.” I get it. I don’t much care about the teams playing this year, but I do enjoy watching football with friends and it’s so exciting to get into a game that so many people care about.

If you don’t agree, then can’t we all at least agree that game day food is the best? Nachos, wings, dips, chili, finger foods… What’s not to love?

Today’s recipe was created out of my love for both spinach and artichoke dip and meatballs, and it’s the perfect game day food that won’t make you feel tired and sluggish afterwards.

I love these spinach and artichoke meatballs because they literally come together in 5 minutes and all you really have to do is throw them in the oven. And they are seriously so delicious! The meatballs are a bit veggie heavy so I didn’t think the fiancé would love them, but he gobbled them up and told me how amazing they were. I think the sauce really pulls all the flavors together so definitely definitely make the sauce! It adds the creaminess and tanginess that’s so amazing in a spinach and artichoke dip.

Whether you are hosting or going to a Super Bowl party, I know these meatballs will be a popular crowd pleaser. It’s so healthy (they are sugar detox-friendly!) but still so healthy and flavorful. I promise, you won’t miss the cheese but if you aren’t lactose intolerant like me, you can also replace nutritional yeast with some cheddar or parmesan. I hope you love these as much as we did!

Hello from LA! We are finally at our final destination on our Pacific Coast Highway road trip and I’m seriously loving all the palm trees, sunshine, and the warm weather. I’d rather not got back to NorCal but we’ll be heading back on January 1st. At least that’s the plan for now.

I also plan to do a blog post on this trip with my mom and how we handled being on an AIP diet for almost 2 weeks while on the road, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I’m excited to share this delicious daikon radish fries with you. These are AIP as well, and I made them so my mom and I can enjoy them together.

If you are even a little bit normal, fries are the best, most addicting things ever. I can go to town on them, but I don’t love the crappy oils that they cook them in at restaurants and I can feel the brain fog afterwards. So I try to make them at home often, and these daikon radish fries came together the other day when I had a giant daikon radish leftover after making my slow cooker Korean short ribs.

If they look slightly burnt, that’s all good. That just means they crisped up nicely and will give that delicious crunch. My only complaint was that I didn’t make enough! These were dangerously addicting and were gone in no time. My mom couldn’t stop raving about how good they were.

If you are looking for a tasty and addicting fries recipes that’s healthy and lower in carbs, you need to make these daikon radish fries because they are awesome!

Notes
