Quick Dinner: Turkey Meatballs and Zoodles

Well, I’m realizing {thanks to those commenting on my Instagram!} that you all like to see my easy meal ideas but you also want to know how to make some of these things!

Okay, that’s not all that unexpected. But now that I know there’s an audience, I’m going to start posting recipes of things that I see you all want to make.

So, here’s the first quick dinner: turkey meatballs and zoodles!

Zoodles + Turkey Meatballs

I’ve been saving up for an Inspiralizer— I currently use a mini spiralizer I found on Amazon for really cheap and it’s on it’s last legs! But, you can indeed get a low-cost one to give zoodles {and other spiralized veggies/fruits} a try.

I love zoodles because they’re not only fun to make + eat, but super low carb!

See the recipe below; I’ve included the brands I love but this post is not sponsored.
