Turkey Meatballs and Brussels Sprouts Rice

Turkey Meatballs and Brussels Sprouts Rice I love meatballs and spaghetti, but the truth is my body hates it, so here’s the next best thing.

Because (as we all know), I’m really into clean and simple eating, Ive created yet another low maintenance 2-item dinner that always leaves me feeling satisfied, meet turkey meatballs and Brussels sprouts rice (properly seasoned with salt and pepper!).

This dinner came about because I was pressed for time, needed something easy, and wanted to keep it clean and organic. Brussels sprouts are part of the cruciferous family and therefore are really good at helping to promote a clean and healthy liver, and natural detoxification system for the body. Turkey is a great alternative to red meat and even to other types of poultry, it’s lean and loaded with protein.

So, I made this easy power meal that I always have leftovers from and therefore can eat again for lunch the following day, lucky me!

Happy cooking, friends!
