Spicy Homemade Meatballs & Spaghetti Squash - Fit as a Mama Bear


  1. I know this sounds SO cheesy, but meatballs are literally one of my favorite foods! I’ll choose meatballs over a burger any day, which is kinda weird since a burger is basically a giant meatball! These look yummy!

    • Sooo not cheesy! I love them too, I’ll eat them right out of the fridge (crazy I know) because they’re just soooo good!

  2. Ooooo these look really amazing! I LOVE spaghetti squash and love how you have the shreaded carrots in the recipe! 🙂

    • Thanks Julia! I go on and off spaghetti squash sometimes but when I’m on it’s ALL I want lol

  3. Those meatballs sound uh-mazing! Not all my family is into spicy… so more for me! Haha. Can’t wait to give them a try. 🙂

    • Haha yea, my toddler is hit or miss with spicy so for hers I omit the flakes and make two different servings lol #momlife

  4. I am with you! LOVE meatballs and often change over from beef to turkey! My version will now have the shredded carrots!
    I never use bread crumbs or almond meal. Forgive the question, if it’s obvious.. Why add the almond meal?
    Always eager to learn. I’m with you too re the heat.. Herbalists often say that it’s great to have a hit of some heat with meals here and there
    to encourage good circulation and support immune health (as you said) and my tolerance has grown over the years.
    Yummy! thanks!

    • I could live off meatballs haha I actually used to hate spice but now I find myself loving it- and so great for your system! As for the almond meal, I began using it in place of flour to help bind them one day when I ran out of flour haha now I do it because I like adding a bit of extra healthy fats to them and combined with the egg I feel it helps hold them together- no other fancy explanation aside from I’m an almond addict 😉
