Paleo Turkey Meatballs and Zoodles

Spaghetti has always been a staple in my home, until that whole carb gluten thing started posing a problem as an adult. When I was dealing with the worst symptoms of PCOS, it was very important to me to make sure that I was keeping to clean foods that would help me improve my symptoms, no matter how good that spaghetti tastes.

I’ve known about spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles as replacements for traditional wheat based noodles, but how to make it taste like the spaghetti dinners of old was a challenge. Then the paleo turkey meatballs entered my life.

These paleo turkey meatballs are so easy to make, and are perfect for either a quick dinner for the family, or for meal prep on a Sunday that can be eaten for lunches all week-long. You can also used different types of meat, I’m just a huge fan of ground turkey.

The zucchini is also extremely easy to spiralize and heat up in a pan, which is a welcome change from conventional wheat noodles that take, especially when your a kid, seem to take 50 years to cook.
