i’ve been loving these with a loaded fresh salad mix of cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, and feta mixed with olive oil and balsamic. it’s such a simple meal to throw together for work lunches or an easy dinner. i also love these in some wraps! so so good every time.

you’ll be surprised how easy these meatballs are! they make for a delicious, lean protein that you can whip up in no time.

for the wraps, i used angelic bakehouse sprouted grain wraps. sprouted grains are easier on digestion and therefore make the nutrients more readily available for us to absorb. click here for $2 off now http://bit.ly/AngelicBitesByMia !

i can’t wait to hear what meals you guys put together with these!
