A Fast, Healthy Meal Idea for Busy Moms

Here is a great recipe for a fast, healthy meal tonight.  These spinach turkey meatballs are high protein, low fat, yet tasty-a tough combination to find.  I whipped these up with some gluten free pasta, stir fry veggies, and gluten free breadsticks (for husband) tonight, and everyone was happy.  You can find the recipe at Michelle Marie’s fitness and nutrition blog for moms:

Protein rich foods are important for obvious reasons:  optimal weight, insulin control, muscle building, etc.  Did you know that protein rich foods are also crucial for mood?  Yep.  Protein breaks down into the amino acids that are necessary for building mood related neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine.  Kids who don’t get enough protein (as with the typical diet high in refined carbohydrates and trans fats) can easily become deficient in both of these neurotransmitters.  Start your day off with a good dose of healthy protein and fats for optimal brain functioning, healthy mood, and optimal weight.

That’s all for today from hot, muggy, Boca Raton, folks.  If I could summarize the theme of our weekend, it would be “The Birthday Party Marathon.”  I can’t get the “Happy Birthday” tune out of my head, and I’m certain that my daughter has ingested enough refined sugar and food coloring to hold her until oh, Christmas of 2020.  Thank goodness for spinach protein meatballs…..
