Slow Cooker Turkey Meatballs

Day 7

Ok I am loving this and challenge so far, and I am loving that I am sticking with it! Meatballs are so so delicious, especially when they are made from scratch. These slow cooker meatballs are easy to put together, healthy, and delicious.  They are also gluten free since I used almond meal  because I like the texture better than bread crumbs and because of course it’s  much healthier.  So forget the frozen ones and make these easy, healthy, and tasty meatballs.


Ingredients:

2 lbs ground turkey

2 tbs chopped fresh basil

1 tbs chopped fresh parsley
