For the meatballs:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x11 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a food processor, add the spinach, garlic, and onion. Then process until everything is in very small pieces. Add the spinach/onion mixture to a large mixing bowl along with the ground beef, sea salt, pepper, Italian seasonings, parsley, and coconut cream or heavy cream. Mix well.
Roll into meatballs and place into prepared baking dish.
Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until cooked through.
For the soup:
Add the oil to a large, heavy-bottomed pot or dutch oven and heat over medium heat.
Add the onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. Saute until veggies are slightly soft, around 4 minutes.
Add salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar. Taste soup, if it tastes flat, it needs more salt.
Add the meatballs to the soup and serve!
Each serving is about 2 ladles of soup - approximately 1 heaping cup.
If you would like to reduce the carb count, omit the carrot, zucchini, and reduce the onion to 1/2. This will make each serving have 7 net carbs.
Don't skip the balsamic vinegar! The balsamic vinegar is my secret ingredient. It adds a depth of flavor and tart sweetness you don't want to miss!
The soup can be made ahead of time and frozen in individual containers to eat later.
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to one week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
The coconut cream or heavy cream is an added ingredient to ensure the meatballs turn out juicy!
For coconut cream, place full-fat canned coconut milk in the fridge for 24 hours. Then, scoop out the coagulated cream. I recommend Sprouts, Thai Kitchen, or Native Forest brands. Other brands may not separate as well or leave an aftertaste.

Love the concept of this soup but the meatballs have the worst texture in my opinion. I even cooked less time so that they wouldn’t be overcooked. They’re not tender the way a meatball should be, the veggie combo and the balsamic at the end is really good though
This recipe looks so good! I have recently discovered I have a gluten intolerance and am looking for healthy paleo recipes. Very excited to explore your page. Going to be making this delicious looking soup tomorrow after I prepare my own homemade bone broth. Thank you!
Family loved it! I made it a couple times with some ready made meatballs (not frozen) which made the recipe even easier! But I like making my own meatballs loaded with veggies! Great with a fresh loaf of bread , if you are not keto!
Actually, I’m not sure!! I have a program that automatically calculates the nutrition info and I tried to look at the breakdown of each ingredient but potassium wasn’t listed ?? If I had to guess though, it’s the brand of the tomatoes used in the calculation. I’d imagine you could just find some that are low in potassium ?? But again, I’m just guessing. Sorry!
Actually on Keto we need more potassium so it’s really not a deal killer??

The ground beef and tomatoes each add a few thousand mg, the zuchinni another thousand or so, and then decent amounts from the spinach, carrot, garlic, etc. The estimate could be a bit high but overall makes sense. Potassium’s super important and it can be difficult to get enough through food or even to supplement, so this recipe is awesome!

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.
Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.
Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.
Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.
5. Burger King
Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.
It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.
BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
With a few vegetarian options at Wendy's, Sour Cream and Chive Baked Potatoes
