Hi friends! Happy Monday! Today’s recipe Homemade Italian Meatballs is another favorite from the Fixate cookbook that I make on a weekly basis as part of my Meal Prep Sundays.  If you’ve tried my Homemade Italian Meatballs recipe in the past, this version is a bit healthier and doesn’t use any flour. As I mentioned on my Recipes Page, recipes created and posted prior to August 2014 are still being adapted to our clean eating lifestyle.
