“On the Go” Meatballs 


1 ½ pounds ground pork
1 ½ pounds ground beef (grass-fed)
1/2 cup almond flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons of dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 large eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
Place the ground meats, almond meal, garlic, seasonings, salt, pepper, eggs in a bowl.
Jam your hands in the box and mix it up. Then using those same hands, form the mixture into large golf ball-esk meatballs.
Place the meatballs on the baking sheet and put in the oven for 20 minutes.

Pull them from the oven, let cool and put in sealable containers for the fridge and eat them when you are in a rush or on the go.
