Meatballs are such a great comfort food and if you make ‘em yourself, they can actually be healthy! Our founder Keri Glassman has been making these babies for her whole family and can confirm that these do not disappoint. “They add variety to our daily dishes, and lamb is high in conjugated linoleic acid, which is associated with fat loss.”
