Sagi’s Signature Meatballs

One of my favorite things about getting a new program is the recipes that come with the meal plan. I tell people all the time when they first order a Beachbody program… you have NO idea what you are about to get! You get a complete fitness program created by the world’s best trainers and nutrition guides and recipes that were created just for that particular program by top-notch nutritionists. Every time I unbox a new Challenge Pack, it feels like Christmas!! Workouts, meal plans, recipes, calendars, the WORKS!

Anyway, one of the first recipes I tried when I started Body Beast was Sagi’s Signature Meatballs. Not only are they fast, easy and delicious… they are easy to double or triple… and they are SO good. I’ve made them twice this week, and my husband and kids can’t get enough. So, as requested, here you go! <3
