Low Carb Thai Turkey Meatballs

These healthy, low carb Turkey Thai Meatballs are one of the bonus recipes from my 8 Week Lean and Clean Program for healthy weight loss, which starts on 01/11/2021. They are gluten free, dairy free, quick and easy to make and Paleo- and Whole30-approved. Enjoy!

I eat Lean and Clean pretty much 90% of the time, so keeping my meals fresh and flavorful is key for keeping me on track and helps me love this way of eating (and the results it gives, obvs). These Thai Turkey Meatballs are inspired by thai style flavours and pack a delicious punch of ginger, garlic, chili and lemongrass. They are great served on a bed of fluffy cauliflower rice, and I like to make a double batch and eat the next day as part of a leftovers lunch.
