Happy Saturday 🌈 this week I am sharing one of our favorite ways to eat nose to tail and get lots of healthy protein and fat 🙌🏻
We are always looking for ways to eat the most nutrient dense foods- did you know that many people who eat a Whole Foods based diet are actually nutrient deficient because they only eat muscle meats?
Many processed foods are fortified with nutrients so if you’re not eating those (which you shouldn’t be), you may be deficient unless you eat nose to tail and incorporate shellfish and mollusks as well 🙌🏻
I published a whole guide to eating organ meats here 😇
These chicken meatballs are a great way to sneak in some heart, which is full of CoQ10 which is very important for your mitochondrial function as well as our heart health (they always say like supports like) 🫀
We’ve also snuck heart into these skewers and have grilled beef heart ❤️
To make these yummy chicken meatballs you need:
1 lb ancestral chicken blend, we got ours from 1915 Farm but Force of Nature also sells a good ancestral blend, check out my guide to chicken here!
1/2 chopped onion 🧅
Fresh chopped basil 🌿
1 egg 🍳
2 tablespoons coconut flour 🥥
Cumin, truffle salt and smoked sea salt 🧂
Duck fat or ancestral fat for frying 🍳
Combine the minced chicken, egg, coconut flour, onions, herbs and spiced in a bowl and mix well.
Heat up the duck fat in the pan and form little meatballs with your hands. 1 pound is generally enough for about 6 meatballs!
Fry until crispy golden on each side, about 10 minutes on each side!
Enjoy with your favorite veggies like sautéed carrots, crispy Brussels sprouts, or grilled eggplant and lots of guacamole and bell pepper dip! These can also be enjoyed cold on a fat fueled salad or as a quick snack!
