Asian Meatballs recipe is one of the first recipes I zoned in on when I decided to eat Paleo. Some people have never been a huge fan of meatballs, mainly because they’ve only been exposed to spaghetti and red sauce, and that’s just not one of their favorite meals.
But these Asian Meatballs Recipe looked delicious, and I happily ate them for lunch or dinner three times last week.
With turmeric rice, my friend commented on how good the above meal smelled, but she was really skeptical when I told her what it was. She’s a good sport and still wanted to try it, and she was pleasantly surprised! My food choices are slowly becoming less and less crazy in my house.
