We had a fabulous Christmas, and I hope you all enjoyed your holidays, as well! Time with the family was so sweet, and we had a great time celebrating the birth of our Savior with the ones we love! Emily is really into Harry Potter these days, and one of her gifts was The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. We’ve already made the treacle fudge (modified it to make it dairy free, and it turned out great…not diabetic friendly, though!), pumpkin juice, and last night we modified Molly’s Meatballs with Onion Sauce to fit our family’s food plan. These Gluten Free Turkey Meatballs, with onion sauce, were delicious, easy, and healthy!!!
I highly recommend this cookbook, especially if you are British or like Harry Potter. My mom, whose dad grew up in England, loved browsing through the recipes. As you can see in the pictures, we served our meatballs with pumpkin juice. Pumpkin juice is served at most meals in Hogwarts, so the kids got a kick out of that!
Some of the modifications we used to make these meatballs fit our needs are that we used turkey, instead of beef, gluten free bread crumbs, instead of regular, and I added extra parsley. Turkey is high in tryptophan, and it’s easier to digest than beef. I had too much ham on Christmas, and my tummy is begging for healthier meats! Gluten free bread crumbs aren’t lower in carbs than regular bread crumbs, but there is only half a cup in 6 servings. There’s also a little bit of gluten free bread crumbs.
Before we get to the recipe for the Gluten Free Turkey Meatballs with Onion Sauce, I want to invite you to join with others who are making healthy changes. I’d love to walk alongside you in your journey towards wholeness and health! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!” Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life.
