These healthy Turkey Meatballs are perfect along with homemade Marinara sauce. Serve over spaghetti squash for a fabulous clean eating meal.
Healthy Turkey Meatballs
I make these wonderful, healthy Turkey Meatballs to go along with our Homemade Marinara sauce a lot. My kids ask for them weekly!
They are made with simple ingredients and are baked to make them the healthiest option. I do add parmesan cheese to mine because I like the extra flavor it gives the meatballs. But you can omit the cheese if your’d like for lower calories.
They are the perfect to have by themselves for a “Clean Eating” lunch with a veggie or fruit of your choice as well. Another way I like to eat them is with a little balsamic vinegar drizzled over them with a side of avocado. 🙂
