Sriracha Chicken Meatballs

Oh my gosh, my new Sriracha Chicken Meatballs are LIFE. I made a double batch of these and served for dinner then saved the rest for meals throughout the week. I could literally eat them every single day of the week. THEY ARE SIMPLY INCREDIBLE! It is also Keto, Whole30, Paleo and Macro friendly.

Additionally, these freeze well. If I get to the end of the week and still have meatballs left, I will throw in the freezer and they will last up to 3 months. I simply thaw them and reheat and they are the perfect easy grab and go protein option. They even serve as a great snack in between meals. I will heat up a couple in between lunch and dinner and it fills me up and helps me get in all my protein for the day.

    I made these for dinner this week, and they are delicious. I hadn’t thought before on a dish like this to calculate my macros per meatball, but that makes it so easy for me to determine how many I can eat in a particular meal, including the leftovers for lunches.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
