Low Carb Meatballs and Sauce (Great for those of us with Candida)

I have not eaten meat balls and sauce for at least 2 years, mainly because it made my stomach burn.   The diet I am on now allows me to eat beef and fresh tomatoes so I decided to try to make sauce.

Here are the meatballs after I baked them at 375 degrees until they looked kind of brown all over.

Next I put them into my sauce.  I know it doesn't look like the tomato sauce you are used to but it is the best I can do right now.

I put a little of the sauce over my buckwheat groats.  This tasted very good, not like the sauce your mother makes but until I heal from candida this is how it will be.

I will try to explain to you how I made this.


2 Pounds very lean hamburger
1/4 Cup egg whites or 2 eggs
Flax Seed (enough to make hamburger stick together to make meat balls)
Pepper (if you can tolerate)

Mix all together and make meatballs.  Place on greased cookie sheet.  I greased my baking sheet with cold pressed organic safflower oil.

Bake in oven at 375 degrees until meatballs turn brown.

2 Tomatoes blended in blender
pepper (if you can tolerate)

Put blended tomatoes into a sauce pan and start heating.  When meatballs are browned add them to the sauce and cook for a couple of hours.

I ate this with no problems and even froze some so I can have them another day.


  1. Looks good to me! Isn't it funny how your taste buds appreciate food after a diet? I have allowed myself thin rice crackers with almond butter and after being sugar free for only a week, I thought these were delicious. Dh on the other hand, nearly gagged when I fed him one. lol

  2. Marti,
    Great to see you!!! I have not tried rice crackers yet, I did look at the package and they had some things in them that I wasn't sure I wanted to try yet.

    Your Hubs is like mine, he would rather starve than eat what I eat. LOL...if they got as sick as we do, they would try anything.
