Turkey Meatballs

This recipe came from the 21 Day Fix Extreme Eating plan and let me just tell you, they are sooooo good!!  I've been looking for ways to get my protein in that don't always involve eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, and chicken.  Well, I've found it!  You can actually eat 5 of these for 1 protein serving, or 1 red container.  They do count as 1/2 of a yellow container as well.  I had them yesterday and today for lunch and they were definitely fulfilling!
