Keto Cheese Meatballs

Keto Cheese Meatballs are a little bit cheesy and a little bit ballsy. These little suckers are super delicious, and even easier to make.

Its literally cubes of cheese wrapped in mince, then pan fried to perfection. You probably don’t have to read any further, as you’ve probably got the point so far!

This Weeks Recipes

This week’s recipes are based around mince (also known as ground beef). Mince is a cheaper alternative to full cuts of meat like steak and loins, but the fat content makes it more appropriate to a ketogenic lifestyle.

Make sure when you purchase this from the shops to get the full fat version, and not the lean style. Many of the essential vitamins and minerals come from the fat of the meat. Please note grass fed is much better than normal mince, usually containing 6 times more of the essential amino acids and vitamins.

Nutrition is key to a Healthy Keto Lifestyle

Grass-fed doesn’t always mean that its hormone free. Beef cattle are given a large amount of hormones to speed up the process from calf to fully grown livestock. Try also to purchase hormone free, organic beef. The extra cost is definitely outweighed by the benefits.

I have attempted to keep the ingredients fairly similar this week, which reflected nicely in my Sunday meal prep day. It usually takes me around 2 hours to make all 5 meals, and increasing the quantity (for a family) wouldn’t add that much extra time onto that.

So for 2 hours on a Sunday, I have lunches for the whole week, and sometimes even dinners! I’m not a big fan of eating the same meal 5 times a week. The diversity is not only better for your health, but it keeps your taste buds from wandering into sugar-land…

Having the same casserole or bulk food every meal of the day is my form of torture. It’s much cheaper and easier to eat in bulk, but the experience is far greater if diversification becomes routine.
