Italian Meatball Sandwich

Substituting ground turkey for ground beef can reduce the saturated fat and cholesterol in your meals.

The quinoa in these meatballs contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains, which helps to relieve constipation, prevent heart disease and lowers cholesterol.

Morevoer, spinach is a nutritional powerhouse that helps with weight-loss goals, reduces blood pressure and is filled with fiber.
