bad reaction to store bought baked meatballs

I don't normally remember my dreams.
I recently purchased 2 packs of chicken meatballs at Sprouts Grocers in Arizona, and after each time I ate some--4 or 5--I'd either have a really hard time sleeping or staying asleep, and or have a nightmare. They were good, but I won't be getting them again, sadly, as they were part of nice, simple meals, either by themselves or with zuchinni, greens, or spaghetti squash or...

Just curious. What are the ingredients on the label?

I don't have the packages anymore. IIRC, basically ground chicken and spices. Carbs, 1gm per 4 balls, I think. I don't now, never have used many spices, not much more than salt and pepper.

Hi Ella. If you like meatballs, Mellissa at I breathe, I'm Hungry was doing a different kind every Monday. I've marked a bunch of them. Easy for a dinner or a quick grab and go.

Wierd about the ones you bought though. Sometimes if I eat too late that can happen to me. No nightmares but not being able to sleep.

There can be a lot of MSG and even sugar hidden in the "spices", you have to read labels carefully. And most commercial meatballs are made with a bread filler.
