Crockpot Meatballs

Mix together (use your hands):
2lbs grassfed ground beef,
chopped onions, carrots, green peppers (or any other vegetable - get creative!),
2-3 eggs (depending on how many veggies are mixed in),
1/2 cup almond meal,
lots of dried oregano, garlic powder, cracked black pepper, and a little cayenne

Form into large meatballs and cover bottom of crock pot, you might have to stack them depending on the size of your crock pot.
For the sauce mix:
1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomatoe paste
a large handfull of torn fresh basil
5-6 coarsely chopped garlic cloves
a couple pinches of sea salt
cracked black pepper to taste.

Cover meatballs with tomato sauce and cook all day on low. These were even better the next day for lunch!! If you're in a hurry, you can omit the homemade sauce and dump purchased ready-made sauce into the crockpot, but read label carefully if you are eating Paleo!!
