Meatballs:
*85/15 Ground Beef (organic, grass fed if possible)
*1 Egg
*Breadcrumbs
*Ground Mustard
*Garlic Powder
*Onion Powder
*Himalayan Pink Salt
*California Garlic Pepper
*Black Pepper
*Avocado Oil
*Spaghetti Sauce

 

How I Prepared the Meatballs: I mixed the ground beef with the egg, breadcrumbs, and all seasonings.  In a pan on medium-high heat I poured in some avocado oil and pan fried the meatballs until brown on all sides, turning occasionally.  When they were well cooked on each side, I let them cook all the way through by covering the pan with a lid so they could steam.

The meatballs rested a bit so they could cool before I put them in containers for lunches.  I poured spaghetti sauce over each at the end!

 

Carrots:
*Carrots (I used organic, already cut)
*California Garlic Pepper
*Avocado Oil

 

How I Cooked the Carrots: I cut them into small bite sized pieces, tossed them with avocado oil and California garlic pepper and roasted them in the oven at 400 degrees until tender.

 

*It’s clear that I don’t measure ingredients when I cook, but that is because you can rarely be too heavy on seasonings when cooking.  Once you experiment and have been cooking for a while and learn what you like and don’t like, you will do all of your cooking to taste and by eyeballing measurements.  Baking on the other hand, baking is something that requires exact measurements!
