When I first started food-prepping, I honestly had no idea what I was doing. Roast a bunch of chicken breasts in the oven, steam some broccoli and add a bunch of Sriracha sauce. Eat for 5 days straight. Rinse and repeat. On some days, I thought thinking outside of the box consisted of substituting broccoli with asparagus or chicken breasts for tuna. It would satiate me but it sure didn’t inspire.

Once I got sick of food-prepping in this manner, I started to think more about how I actually wanted to eat. Thankfully, I have a great role model – my mom. I was 13 years old when my dad got bypass surgery because he had eaten fatty food all his life. Food is king in our household and my dad was spoiled. When he got out of surgery, he refused to eat “healthy” food. So instead, my mom got creative and started making healthy delicious home-cooked meals by “mocking” her recipes with leaner meats and more vegetables.

This recipe was my break away from the norm and an homage to my mom. These high protein chicken meatballs are made with chicken breast and spinach at the core. But they’re far from boring. Instead, they’re chock full of lean meat, fiber and flavor. Not to mention they’re ridiculously moist and delicious!!

Pair with your favorite tomato sauce or dip them in some hot sauce. From using them as a main course to a high-protein snack, I bet you’ll go back to them time and time again as a staple in your healthy diet repertoire.
