Healthy meatballs

Today is day 2 of my shakeology cleanse. The hardest part so far today? I made these yummy meatballs for Benton and they smelled so good! We love to add them to our spaghetti squash for a healthy Italian meal, but Benton loves to eat them by themselves! He couldn't even wait for them to cool today! As quick as they came out of the oven, he wanted on in his bowl!
You can make them ahead and freeze them too!

1 lb ground turkey
2 eggs
3 garlic cloves minced
1/3 cup almond flour
1/4 cup pure tomato sauce
Handful parsley (I usually use dried because I have it on hand but fresh is great)
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all ingredients.
Place rounded tablespoons onto Olive oil sprayed baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until slightly brown.

Today I added in 1/4 cup carrots. This is a great sneaky way to get your kids their veggies. You can use different ones, even spinach. You can also add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.

Anybody else have a favorite meatball recipe?
