Healthy Changes

My dad recently was told he needs to change his eating habits because his sugar is a little high. He is like me the taste of artificial low-calorie sugar substitutes just does not taste right. So finding something that is low sugar that tastes good is how this Low Sugar Chicken Meatball Parmesan Sliders came to be.

My dad is a huge lover of Italian foods with sauce, like Meatball Subs. Tomato sauce can be full of sugar. Not good for someone who has to watch their sugar intake.

My GBF, Richard, makes homemade tomato sauce. One thing he uses in his sauce is molasses. So I thought, how about using his recipe as a base, but use the Nectevia instead of molasses.

The sauce came out wonderful for these Chicken Meatball Parmesan Sliders. You could not tell that the sauce was low sugar. Best of all, it did not have that artificial taste. It because Nectevia is all natural. So this is perfect for my dad these Chicken Meatball Parmesan Sliders while he watches the Steelers play football!

I decided since it was football time and tailgates are starting that doing a slider would suit this sauce perfectly. I wanted to add a bit of fun to the sauce as well. The Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf was my inspiration. Make it into meatballs. Add shaved parmesan and a basil leaf for this yummy tailgate snack.

    Having to make diet changes is hard especially when everything has hidden crap in it. Luckily there are so many substitution ingredients available now! When we had to switch BBQ sauces for my grandfather for the same reason we started making our own. I love to add “Liquid Smoke” to it because it really helps get that authentic flavor. These sliders look amazing!!
