These asian chicken meatballs are so delicious.  I make them all time.  Perfect to eat as is, with rice, or as a sub sandwich.

After making my meatballs, I toss them in a sweet and tangy asian BBQ type sauce and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

These meatballs are perfect to eat hot or at room temperature. Here they are packed in my Easylunchbox.

I decided to eat them with a spinach salad.

Asian Chicken Meatball Sub in Easylunchboxes

Another way I love eating my asian chicken meatballs, is as a sub sandwich. I just top with a tangy coleslaw salad, and it is perfect. I also packed my asian chicken meatball sub in my Easylunchbox, alongside some mixed fruit, mini Babybel cheese, and WOATS Cookies ‘n’ Dreams oatsnack.

I hope this has inspired you to make your own amazing meatball lunch.

Enjoy!!

As a food blogger, I always love trying new products.  A few weeks ago, I discovered a gluten-free company called Simple Mills, and decided to contact them. The company was founded out of a need to create simple, fast, and easy, allergy friendly foods. The founder Katlin, discovered she and her family had allergies to several common foods, and set out to change their diet. She turned to gluten-free foods on grocery store shelves, but quickly realized many allergy friendly foods on the market contained other allergens or large amounts of sugar. Katlin knew she could create better products, and as a result Simple Mills was created. The company was kind enough to send me 5 free samples of their products to try and review.

Simple Mills Products
I received the following:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
Focaccia & Sandwich Bread Mix
Banana Muffin Mix
Pumpkin Muffin Mix
Chocolate Muffin Mix

All of their products are gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, non-GMO, paleo friendly, have a low-glycemic index, and contain no refined sugars.

Since my family loves chocolate, I decided to try out their chocolate muffin mix.

The chocolate muffin mix contains almonds, organic coconut nectar, arrowroot powder, unsweetened cocoa, organic vanilla beans, baking soda, and celtic sea salt.

Here is what the mix looks like up close.

To make the muffins, all you have to do is place mix into a bowl, add 1 egg (or egg substitute), 1/2 cup water, and 1 Tbsp oil, and mix well.  (I added 1/3 cup Enjoy Life gluten free mini chips to batter).   Recipe states that it only yields 9 cupcakes, but I was actually able to make 11 cupcakes out of this batter.

I baked cupcakes for 20 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven, and then removed from oven once toothpick came out clean.

Allow cupcakes to cool before handling.

I wish I could put into words how insanely delicious these muffins tasted. They were moist, with a nice chocolate flavor. The almond taste was so subtle, and did not take away from the taste/texture of the muffins. Without chocolate chips added, each muffin is 130 calories. Here is more information regarding the nutritional facts and products ingredients for you to read.

Simple Mills Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

This my friends is what a gluten free chocolate muffin looks like when done correctly!!

Each 9.4oz pack of Simple Mills products sells for $8.99/pack or you can get a variety pack of 3 mixes for $24.99. This product may seem a bit costly to some, but considering the cost of the ingredients, this price is relatively accurate. If you would like to try Simple Mills products, they can be purchased directly from Simple Mills site or on Amazon.com.

I hope you decide to give them a try.

Enjoy!!

Are you are salmon fan?  For me it is hit or miss.  Sometimes I LOVE it, and other times not so much.  It really depends on how it is prepared.  I tend to love it marinated in some type of asian sauce, then grilled or broiled.  If it is too oily, I tend to not […]

I am often asked this question whenever I pack one of my typical lunch boxes, “But how do you keep it hot?”  And my typical response is, “I don’t mind eating it at room temperature.”  Well the reality is, a lot of people do mind eating their hot lunches at room temperature, and want their […]
