  • 2-3 zucchini, spiralized (I just buy a 500g package from the grocery store pre-made)
  • 1 jar tomato sauce (make sure there's no sugar added for Whole 30)

Baked turkey meatballs

  • 1 lb ground turkey or chicken (you could even do extra lean ground beef too!)
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tbsp dried)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 medium-sized yellow onion, grated
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper


  • Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Mix all ingredients for ground turkey meatballs in a large bowl, stirring until well-combined. Wet hands with water and roll into 1-inch meatballs, creating 20 of them. Add to baking sheet in rows and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Meanwhile, spiralize zucchini or add prepared zucchini to meal prep bowls and top with a bit of tomato sauce. When meatballs come out of oven, add 5 to each bowl. Bowls will keep in fridge up to 5 days.
  • If freezing, place in a thick plastic bag and label with date. Will keep in freezer up to 6 months.
