Quinoa Turkey Meatballs

It's been a while since I last shared a recipe.  I still cook often, but finding the time to take pictures of what I make has been challenging.  For any mamas out there with a VERY active toddler, you know what I'm talking about!  Anyway...I made these healthy turkey meatballs a few days ago and actually had some time to put this post together.  You all know that I'm a huge fan of cooking with quinoa and these meatballs didn't disappoint.  They're healthy, delicious and EASY to make.

1 lb of lean ground turkey (I used 93%)
1 cup of cooked quinoa
1 medium yellow onion, diced very small
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup of chopped spinach leaves (I used baby spinach leaves)
2 tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon of Oregano 
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
1 egg, beaten 

Spray a baking pan with cooking spray and preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together until well combined
Form into 1" meatballs, rolling in between your hands and then lay out on your baking sheet
Bake for 35 minutes or a little more – until golden brown
Rotate them half way through

Coat Check

Forever 21 coat, J Brand jeans, Monrow tee, Adidas sneakers, Forever 21 scarf
This outfit incorporates four of my favorite things for fall.  A camel coat, plaid scarf, jeans and sneakers.  Remember my long camel coat from this post?  I love it so much that I couldn't resist getting this shorter version.  Besides, you can never have too much of a good thing.

Inspiration: Turtlenecks

It's finally feeling fall (ish) in L.A. and that means one thing.  Sweater weather.  I've always loved turtleneck sweaters, but for some reason, I'm loving them more than ever right now.  I recently came across these images on Pinterest and each and every one of them has me completely inspired.  Whether it's worn alone or layered underneath a blazer or a coat, it's a simple way to look incredibly chic while staying warm.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!
