Healthy Meatball Soup Recipe- Light Italian Meatball Soup for Diabetics

 In Diabetes, Recipe

This healthy soup recipe is amazing!! I created this healthy meatball soup recipe on a cold winter day (well, it’s Arizona, but it was 65 degrees), with a family that had the sniffles.  I used ground turkey to lighten the menu, also it’s what I always have at my house:)

This light Italian Meatball soup recipe is perfect for diabetics.  For great diabetes recipes, I love to add tons of vegetables that fill me up, but don’t have very many carbs.

This healthy soup recipe is a fast soup, took about 30 minutes to cook, with maybe 5 minutes of chopping.  Feel free to add your favorite vegetables to make it your own, I used what I had in the refrigerator.

Add a couple small yukon potatoes for those in your family not counting their carbs (aka kiddos that need some carbs or grumpy spouses).

I would have added celery, kale and zucchini if I had them in my refrigerator.
