Healthy Turkey Meatball

I'm into turkey meatballs, so I'm going to show you how you can make some awesome, yummy organic meatballs which are packed full of protein, nutrients, and fresh, whole ingredients. We are not putting in any preservatives, and we will use all natural spices for flavor. I find that when you use real ingredients it's hard to mess up - except for that one time when I burned down the house cooking Chili. And I guess that one thanksgiving when everyone got food poisoning and ... well... meatballs, here we go!
