Anyone else feel like you need to eat all the vegetables the day after the Super Bowl? We had a fun weekend with a taco & margarita party at a friends house, and snacked our way through some homemade buffalo wings last night during the game so I’m ready for a week of healthy eating. I have a new recipe to share today for these easy hoisin turkey meatballs that I served with shredded carrots, pickled onions, and a tangy sriracha sauce over lettuce wraps. They make for great leftovers to pack for lunch, and I keep a few sriracha-free to serve with rice for a kid-friendly version. Scroll down to get the full recipe, and if you’re looking for more healthy, family-friendly dinner ideas visit a few of my blogger friends who are also sharing recipes today too: Home with the Wileys | Lilies And Lambs | Caitlin Houston | Purely Simple.
