Balanced Weeknight Meal 

 

A Balanced Weeknight Meal for the whole family packed with vegetables, anti inflammatory spice and super food.

The chicken meatballs are suitable for BLW babies from 8-9 month+ due to the chia seed.

The chicken meatballs are egg free as I’ve used chia egg and it worked like real egg! I also didn’t use any breach crumbs. They are packed with carrot, apple and turmeric, really so delicious to munch on!

Can you guess how many veggies there are in this meal?

FIVE + APPLE + CHIA SEEDS! You can’t tell can you! Nor could my two fussy eaters ! 😉  #winwin #momwin
