Paleo Italian Meatballs

\n\nWe have successfully completed 5 days of Whole30. I honestly think this is a wonderful way to eat.  I thought at first it would be so much more work than what I had been doing, but honestly besides using ghee instead of butter and having to postpone my Paleo Baking for a while it has been easy.  That being said it is probably because Trevor and I love cooking and cook most of our meals.  There are those days that you don't feel like cooking, but with a little planning ahead we can usually pull a meal out of our fridge with little prep.\n\nHere are a few things we had in the fridge this week. \n\n##Megan's Paleo Italian Meatballs\n\n####Ingredients\n\n1 lbs ground beef\n1/2 cup Megan's Italian Mash Cauliflower (recipe below)\n4 button mushrooms\n1/2 large yellow onion diced\n1 cup spinach\n1 Tbsp.
