Turkey Power Snack

best turkey meat ball power snack recipe

Power snacks don’t get more nutritious and delicious than this!

When you make the decision to start eating healthy, your entire diet goes under review. Upon reflection, it’s often surprising how many unhealthy snack items have taken up residence in your daily routine. By their nature, snacks have to be quick and easy; a short pause to refuel so that hunger leaves you alone for a few more hours. This is why unhealthy items are so often selected: a package from a vending machine or a bag grabbed from a drive thru window. Unhealthy snacks are quick, mindless and do stop the hunger for a span of time.

But all of those unhealthy snacks are robbing you of your ideal body, your best health, and of that real, pure energy boost that only wholesome food delivers.

The good news for you, as you carry on towards your best self, is that wholesome snacking can be just as quick, simple and convenient as junk food snacking. Really! All it takes is a little bit of forethought.

Taking a couple of hours on the weekend to bake a batch or two of these Turkey Power Meatballs, a pan of Real Food Cookies, a batch of All Day Energy Bars, and to slice organic fruit and hard boil a dozen eggs will set you up for a week filled with smart, healthy snacking. And just like that you take another giant step towards that leaner, healthier, more energetic you. The best version of you.

Enjoy these wholesome Turkey Meatballs and feel free to make 2 batches at a time!

    Turkey bites- how many calories each? Any idea of WW points?
    Eaten cold? How long will they last in the fridge?
    Can be frozen?

      Hello Jan,

      The nutritional info is per meatball. We do not keep track of WW points. They are great eaten cold. They will last about 2 days in the fridge.

      Happy cooking! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Since we don’t get turkey easily in India, what meat can I substitute instead?

    • Diana August 8, 2016 at 6:51 pm

      Hello,

      Ground chicken is a great lean meat alternative for turkey. Let me know how it turns out!

      Happy cooking! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi There,
    I was just wondering if these are okay to freeze? They sound delicious! I noticed you said two days in the fridge however I have been looking for something that I can make ahead and freeze the extras.
    Much appreciated,
    Jess

    • Diana August 17, 2016 at 3:13 pm

      Hi Jess,
      Yes! You certainly can freeze these meatballs. Cook as directed, cool, place pan in freezer with meatballs evenly spaced, once frozen transfer to a freezer safe ziplock bag. To reheat place in the slow cooker with your favorite sauce on high for 1-3 hours. Enjoy!
