  • 1 Apple (medium, cored, grated)
  • 1 Zucchini (medium, grated)
  • 1 lb Lean Ground Pork
  • 1 Sweet Potato (small, grated)
  • 1/3 cup Parsley (finely chopped)
  • 2 Garlic (cloves, minced)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 10 cups Baby Spinach


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a paper towel or a kitchen towel, squeeze as much moisture out of the grated apple and zucchini as possible. Set aside into a large bowl.
  • To the same bowl, add ground pork, sweet potato, parsley, garlic and sea salt. Mix well. Roll the mixture into 1.5-inch balls.
  • Place the meatballs on the baking sheet and place in the oven for 15 to 16 minutes.
  • In a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, add the spinach and cook until just wilted. Divide the spinach between plates and top with the meatballs. Enjoy!


  • Leftovers

    Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days. Freeze the meatballs for up to two months.
  • Serving Size

    One serving is equal to approximately five meatballs.
  • Making the Meatballs

    Ensure that the zucchini and apple are well squeezed of excess moisture, otherwise, the mix will be too wet to hold together.
  • More Flavor

    Serve over top of rice, cauliflower rice, or alongside roasted vegetables.
