6 Ingredient Asian-Style Meatballs

21 day sugar detox

It’s been a few weeks since I completed the 21-Day Sugar Detox.

In those few weeks I celebrated a friends birthday, went skiing up in Mammoth and had Superbowl Sunday. There was a lot of drinking, a lot of snacking and a lot of sugar…oops! BUT I still feel great and don’t feel like I’ve lost any progress since I’ve been modifying the 21-Day Sugar Detox during the week. Gotta love that 80/20 lifestyle. 

Normally by February all good intentions I had going into the new year would be starting to fade away but I just can’t stress enough how much this short 21-Day plan changed my entire outlook on eating. Even with a few weekends going completely off the rails with eating/drinking I feel confident going back to what I learned on the program to reset my body. If you are struggling seeing progress at the gym or with dieting I highly recommend checking out the 21-Day Sugar Detox!

And if you don’t want to spend money on another book just start trying to eat more real food instead of processed junk. It really is that easy!

To help you get started I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes from the 21-Day Sugar Detox book… Asian-Style Meatballs. No joke, I think I made them 10 times while on the program! I have this meatball recipe modified and perfected down to a science so enjoy!

  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and create about 16 1-ounce meatballs

Be sure to get those green onions, ginger and garlic minced really small so every single meatball has that delicious flavor!

Roll your meatballs into about 1-ounce balls and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Honestly, don’t worry if your meatballs are too big or too small…sometimes I end up with 20 sometimes 12.
