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.

      1. 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!
