Healthy Food You Can Freeze and Use With Versatility

Turkey meatballs are a great food item to prepare in advance because it can be used in multiple recipes as well as stored in the freezer.

It could be paired with a low carb or high carb meal with a multitude of options for seasonings and sauces. You could throw some in zucchini noodles with pesto or even in pasta and tomato sauce for dinner. They also pair well with coconut cauliflower rice and cilantro-lime sauce or even next to Asian style stir fry with rice. More recipes that pair well with turkey meatballs can be found in my ebook!

Turkey Tips

  • Try to buy organic, they are more humanely raised and contain less pesticides and herbicides. 
  • Choose the meat that is supple.
  • Be sure to cook the turkey roast until it is piping hot all the way through.
  • Turkey dries out quickly, so don't overcook it.
  • If marinating turkey meat, put it in the fridge straight after you've finished, because it is highly sensitive to heat.
  • Store turkey separate from any gravy, stuffing or raw food to prevent cross contamination.
  • Refrigerated turkey will keep for about one or two days. If it is already cooked, it will keep for about four days.
