The thing I love about these chicken meatball wraps is that you can adjust your protein intake so easily. They are just as tasty wrapped in lettuce for 0 carbs, as they are in pillowy pita bread. Because each meatball is 7 grams of protein, you get to choose how much or how little protein you get in each wrap. Lacey created these moxie meatballs as a simple protein, and the mediterranean twist is fresh and light.
When it comes to protein, sometimes the most tedious part is measuring out what you need. By having these meatball pre made you can be sure that you are getting what you need. It’s easy to pack in the veggies and keep it tasty when serving too!
