Fixate vs Body Beast Meatball Recipe Review

Fixate Italian Meatballs   I love Italian food. I especially love spaghetti and meatballs. However, I know that my favorite, local Italian restaurant does not help me meet my fitness and nutrition goals. I’ll save going there for a special occasion or a treat meal! But, eating healthy does not mean giving up the dishes that we love or depriving ourselves. So, when I got my hands on the Fixate Cookbook by Autumn Calabrese, creator of the 21 Day Fix workout program, I had to try this recipe before all others to get my meatball fix! fixate-cookbook

In all honesty, I had been making the Beast Meat Balls from the Book of Beast, the nutrition guide by Sagi Kalev, creator of the workout program, Body Beast. My family loves them but it was time to have a meatball challenge between Autumn and Sagi! Whose meatballs would be voted the best?

They are very similar in that they each use ground lean turkey instead of beef and each have similar seasoning. The Beast meatballs are gluten free because they call for Oats instead of bread crumbs. My daughter is gluten free, and so am I accept in my times of weakness when I dive into a dish of pasta or loaf of bread. I am human and do screw up sometimes! So, I modified the Fixate Italian Meatball recipe and used Oats instead of bread crumbs.

We found that since the Fixate meatballs call for you to saute onions and garlic first and since you add a little parmesan cheese to them, they are more moist than the Beast Meatballs. But hey, you could modify the Beast Meatballs too! After all, Sagi and Autumn have teamed up to release their new workout program, Hammer and Chisel in December of 2015, so I don’t think they’d mind if you combined their recipes to make your healthy meatballs exactly how you like them either! We enjoy both recipes and they have become a staple in our household.
