It’s Get Naked Friday!  My favorite day of the week.  Because, let’s face it feeling healthy, self confident, and beautiful is what it’s all about.

Today I wanted to share an incredible recipe that I adapted from the amazing blog, Damn Delicious.  By far one of my favorite blogs to follow.

I made these meatballs, with some adjustments to suit me, for Super Bowl and I fell in love.

I have made them several times since.

Here is what I have done for the past 2 weeks.  The last two Sundays, I have I made a batch of them along with a few days worth of broccoli and rice and TADA, I have healthy lunches for the week already ready to go.  Just heat and eat!

This is the first time I have done some meal prep for the week.  It is a bit of work, but the payoff is awesome.   I don’t go craving the fast and easy food, because I know I have something healthy and oh so delicious already prepared and waiting for me in my fridge!

The star of this recipe is the homemade teriyaki sauce.  It is so incredibly yummy.  I have since used it on other things like salmon. 

I am never going back to bottle teriyaki again!

So, without further adieu, here is my adaptation from Damn Delicious awesome recipe for Teriyaki Meatballs.
