The Keto Clan’s (Turkey Meatball Soup)

Meatball soup

I actually came across this recipe from so all credit goes there. (I changed a couple of things just to make it keto friendly) It is such a fantastic soup! I’m in love with it.  The meatballs just melt in your mouth and it is so filling and the best part is you can freeze any leftovers, or in my case I actually blend all my leftovers until it’s like a paste and I freeze it for my toddler he can’t get enough of it.  So it’s a bonus for me, means one less dish I have to cook.
