      I’ve been spreading the word about the primal lifestyle for over a decade now, and while the information on this blog and in my books has reached millions, I wonder how many of these millions have actually been able to live some version of a primal life consistently and confidently.

Marvelous Meatballs

Another great meatball recipe from the Everyday Paleo book.  I baked them in the oven, but these meatballs can be cooked in the slow cooker, making them an easy choice for a busy-day dinner.  The sauce is so delicious, I use it to top my Mom’s Meatloaf

Marvelous Meatballs

2 pounds grass fed ground beef

1 pound ground mild italian sausage

3 celery stalks, diced

2 carrots, diced

1 white onion, diced

3 omega-3 eggs

1/2 cup almond meal (I omitted this and mine held together just fine)

2 tablespoons dried oregano

1 tablespoon garlic powder

pinch cayenne pepper

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Using your hands, mix all ingredients together.  Form mixture into large meatballs (baseball sized) and place them into the bottom of a slow cooker, stacking them if necessary.

THE SAUCE

16 ounce can diced tomatoes

1 can tomato paste

3 cups fresh basil, chopped (yes, three cups, it cooks down) FRESH BASIL IS KEY

5-6 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together.

Cover the meatballs with the sauce and cook 6-8 hours on low in the slow cooker, or about 1 hour at 350 degrees in the oven.
