This Paleo Turkey Meatballs recipe is perfect for busy paleo cooks! It’s the sort of item you can make well ahead of time and freeze and then just pop right into your favorite paleo spaghetti sauce. I personally love to serve these on top of zucchini linguini spirals after tossing the zoodles with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. If you do dairy, top it all off with some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Such a great paleo recipe!
For those of us with an active lifestyle, you save so much time when you prepare these ahead of time and eat them little by little. Pop them into your breakfast (yes, I said breakfast!) or eat them as a yummy high-protein snack! If you want some more convenient recipes, check out my 20-minute paleo recipes.
