Healthy Turkey Meatballs

One thing I love to prepare in bulk for meal prep are these healthy turkey meatballs. Believe it or not, there’s actually a lot of fun, yummy recipes you can make with meatballs. You can of course do the good ol’ spaghetti + meatballs, or if you’re craving a sub you can slice these meatballs and throw them on a sandwich for a juicy meatball sub (this is my hubby preferred way of eating them!) They’re also delicious on top of a salad if you’re looking for a lower carb option. Here’s a traditional┬ábut macro-friendly recipe for turkey meatballs!
