Lean Turkey Meatballs

This recipe was designed to make weekday dinners easy. I use only minimal ingredients which almost everyone already has in their home. This recipe is for those who don't have much time, need a simple and reliable recipe and want something they can freeze for meal prep. As seen in the photo, I like to eat them on top of a Wellness Bowl (recipe will be accessible through the Love Wellness Weekend Challenge digital meal-plan and recipe guide...it's FREE!)

For those looking for an Ultra-Lean version of the recipe, use 1/2 cup egg whites instead of eggs and ground oat flour instead of breadcrumbs. It works the same and still tastes great! 

Without further ado, let's get to the recipe!
