Paleo Meatballs

Cooking homemade meals is something that is very important to me, but as a mom to an active toddler, it is not always easy to cook when I get home from work – especially if daddy is not home to play with the little man. I finally wised up and plan to batch cook on the weekends so I can freeze half for a day when I might not have time (or lets be honest, energy) to cook. Not much makes me happier than coming home from work to an easy dinner prep.

The first recipe I experimented with was Paleo meatballs. I used 2 pounds of pastured ground beef. We ate half for dinner and I froze the other half. Meatballs are a great food to freeze – all you have to do is thaw, warm, and add to your favorite (homemade or pre-made) pasta sauce or marinade. I served these meatballs with my favorite pre-made pasta sauce. It is the only pre-made pasta sauce I have found without sugar, preservatives and/or hidden sources of MSG. Enjoy!
