3 Servings. Each serving: 1 Lean, 1 Green, 1.5 Condiments, (No Healthy Fat required)
16 oz lean ground beef – should yield 3 – 5 oz portions cooked
1 tsp basil leaves (1 Condiment)
1/4 cup egg beaters
1 tbsp parsley flakes (1 Condiment)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (2 Condiments)
1/4 tsp pepper (1/2 Condiment)
1 1/2 cups Italian diced tomatoes – less than 5 grams of carbs per 1/2 cup (3 Greens)
3/4 cup water
Combine all ingredients except the diced tomatoes and water in a bowl until combined. Form balls from the meat. Put diced tomatoes and water in small saucepan over medium heat until heated thoroughly. I like to use a fork and smash the diced tomatoes so it resembles a chunky marinara sauce. The slowly put each meatball in the sauce and let it boil uncovered for 15min or until meatballs are cooked thru. Serve with 1 cup spaghetti squash, zoodles or shiratake noodles for your additional 2 Greens.

Hi! I wasn’t able to find diced tomatoes that had less than 5g carbs per 1/2 c serving. Can you tell me what company/brand you used?
Hmm. I was looking at all the Hunt’s cans but they were all more than 5g. I’ll check a store like ShopRite for greater selection. Thank you!
