Recipe Notes

Trim Healthy Mamas, here's how these fit into our healthy eating plan:

Since venison is naturally lean, on its own it's fine for an E or Fuel Pull style meal. If you have added fat ground into your venison, you'll probably want to plan these meatballs for an S setting.

If using this recipe for an E or Fuel Pull style meal, simply substitute ΒΌ c egg whites, fresh or carton, for the whole egg in this recipe. If you're using ground venison with no added fat, you might want to add 1 tablespoon of healthy fat/oil such as coconut oil (refined has no flavor) or olive oil. This would result in less than 1 teaspoon fat per serving.
