    These are very good! I actually cut the carbs by doubling the recipe but still using only 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs. Baked for 20 mins and they are tender and moist, holding together just fine. We had them for dinner with stir fried bok choy and yellow peppers with red chile flakes. Sweet, sour and spicy.

    I just found you, and you are my hero! I recently had bariatric surgery, and now my dietician pushes protein protein protein, and strongly discourages carbs. Your recipes, of which I’ve tried 4 now, are perfect for my diet. Of course, the portions are reduced (1 ball is plenty filling) but they are so tasty I am tickled to be able to look forward to having more of them. My son is also very happy I found you, as he taste tests all of my recipe attempts.

    I have just found you, and I adore your recipes. I recently had surgery which resulted in losing most of my stomach, which put me under severe dietary constraints. Mostly, protein protein protein. Your food is delicious, and the macros are awesome. Of course, I eat a quarter to half a serving, but now I no longer struggle to get enough protein in. Thank you so very much! You. Are. Awesome.
