Turkey Zucchini Meatballs

These turkey zucchini meatballs are a great prep-ahead protein. Not only do they come together in minutes, but they're freezer-friendly too. I like to make a batch of 20 mini meatballs and use four meatballs per meal prep serving. Add them to any salad or bowl recipe for a healthy, clean gluten-free and paleo protein. Here are some of my favorite pairings:

Moroccan Chickpea Bowls
Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta Bowls
Lemony Spiralized Zucchini Salad
Bánh Mì Bowls
Pesto Zucchini Noodle Bowls with Sundried Tomatoes
