Greek Style Meatballs

The egg in the recipe will help bind; no breadcrumbs or oats or other grains to hold the meatballs together. They’ll come out a little denser than regular meatballs, but that’s why they’re so good over vegetables instead of a huge heavy plate of pasta!

Serve these meatballs with a salad of baby greens and a squeeze of lemon for a meal, or with some roasted root vegetables.

Testimonials

*Well, maybe its an addiction. Almost four months ago, July 1st to be exact, I decided to get my health back in order and get myself into better shape. I joined an intense (extreme?) workout regiment called CrossFit. For those that have spoken/seen me in that last few months, they know I cannot shut up about it. Well, one of the guys in my "Box" wrote an interesting piece on his website regarding his first 3 months as a CrossFit member. His articulate article puts everything I feel/experienced about CrossFit in one piece. If you have time and/or are thinking of getting back into shape, or if you are physically fit and are looking for a new physical challenge, I highly suggest you read the article.

November 1st will be my 120th day as a CrossFit member. To date, I am just shy of losing 30lbs. The weight loss, however, doesn't tell the whole story. The amount of lean muscle mass put on has been equally impressive. I hope to hit my goal by next week.

PS. My wife joined as well for moral support & in the process has gotten hooked too.*
