Cutting out: Red Meat
Goodmorning!! Okay so today has been incredible so far. I woke up, drank 20 oz of water (didn’t put in the cayenne, I forgot), made my bed, started laundry, made a smoothie and let it chill in the freezer for awhile, drank a green super food blend, dry brushed, showered, shaved, and now I’m on here, drinking my smoothie and rejoicing! It’s seriously the small things that make for a good day. My body feels so good right now. I usually would have woke up, had coffee, checked my emails, looked at social media, and probably had a crap breakfast, but between the reset and the fat loss code, I have better ideas for a solid morning routine :)

Cal in: 2,158 | Cal out: 2,909 = -751 cal (this isn’t required, I'm just curious, and I wear a fitbit so its easy to track).
Im not logging my blood glucose or pH because it’s not in my budget to buy all of the supplies needed for it

TO MAKE MEATBALLS: In a large bowl, combine turkey meat, egg, flour, garlic, salt, and herbs and mix until well incorporated. Roll into small balls (about 1 1/2 inches). You’ll get about 24-26 meatballs. Heat 2 tbsp fat of choice in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Cook meatballs for 3-4 minutes, until all sides are brown. You may need to do this in batches. Set aside.
TO MAKE SOUP: Heat 2 tbsp fat of choice in large soup pot. Add onions, carrots and garlic and cook until onions are translucent – about 5 minutes.
Add bay leaves, broth, and meatballs. Bring to a boil, turn down heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add kale and cook until meatballs are cooked through- about 5-7 minutes.
Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh herbs and red pepper flakes.
