Low Carb Turkish Meatballs

I love making meatballs for meals because of portion control. In general, I roll my meatballs into one ounce portions: so if I eat 4 meatballs, I know that equals 4 ounces. Rather helpful when counting calories!!! I also make meatballs in big batches so that I can enjoy them as a low carb snack in between main meals. Rather helpful when counting calories! Also, leaving out those bread crumbs traditionally used in meatballs creates a low carb alternative.

And these Turkish Meatballs are only 4 WW SMART POINTS!
