Meatballs are good on spaghetti, subs or even by themselves and these healthy meatballs are no exception. Plus, these meatballs are packed with veggies, but you won’t even taste it ?

My Go To Healthy Meatball Recipe

I cannot tell you how many times a month I make this healthy meatball recipe. It’s super easy and super yummy and it keeps me full for a long time because it has about 27g of protein per serving. I love pairing it with Miracle Noodles which has zero carbs and top it off with Rao’s Marinara (which has the lowest sugar content in the marinara market!). Italian food is hard to mimic especially when you’re on that keto lifestyle. All we can do is try and I’m so glad I found a healthy recipe that’s a total keeper. You can have these meatballs for lunch, dinner or even a snack, I know I have. Plus, you get a quality serving of veggies with it! I used a whole cup of arugula for this recipe. OK I know what you’re thinking – but arugula is so bitter??!!! Trust me, you won’t even know you’re eating arugula with these babies. I love cooking and it was an exciting to challenge myself in making a healthier meatball recipe. If you babes have any requests, give me a comment below!
