Heather's Turkey Meatballs with Forti-Flax


Turkey Meatballs

The holidays are upon us, and for those of you looking for an interesting and flavorful alternative for your dinner table this fall, Heather Short has an outstanding recipe utilizing Barlean’s Forti-Flax in her Turkey Meatballs recipe on YouTube!

Heather added Barlean’s Forti-Flax, a nutritional powerhouse on its own, with delicious local vegetables and spices to the ground turkey. Heather's recipe makes two dozen succulent meatballs work well as a side dish or with your favorite spaghetti recipe!

Barlean's Forti-Flax, our highest-quality milled flaxseed, gives that extra nutty pop of flavor to the ground turkey. Forti-Flax is a rich source of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids, dietary fiber, protein, amino acids and trace minerals; it is 100% certified organic, Kosher certified, GMO-free, and free of pesticides and herbicides. There is no doubt when using it in this turkey recipe or a new creation of your own, you are getting the very best as nature intended it!

Heather’s recipe is quick and easy, but more importantly, it is a HEALTHY choice. You’re getting a great source of "what you need" from the turkey and vegetables, but the Forti-Flax really takes it to a new level. This recipe comes just in time to fight the holiday "bulge," and trying healthy alternatives like this might be the kick in the pants that some of us need this year. Change doesn't often happen overnight, but it CAN happen, one meal at a time.

Thank you, Heather, for such a delectable recipe!
