In our ‘Fuel Up’ series, sport dieticians from Singapore Sports Institute, Cheryl Teo and Ang Sin Hwee, show you how to cook up delicious meals to last through a day’s training. In this episode, we take a look at meatballs in tomatoes sauce as main course for the day.

Meatballs in the form of beef and tomatoes provides a wholesome meal that is rich in protein, iron and cancer-fighting lycopene. It stores well in the freezer or refrigerator for an instant homemade meal after a long day in the office or as a post-workout meal.

For a high carb meal, have this with pasta, or in between a wholegrain burger bun as a meatball slider.

For a low carb meal, have this on top of a salad, or with cauliflower rice.

This is also a fun recipe to make with the rest of the family or with your kids.


300g beef mince, swap this with pork, chicken or even tuna if you prefer
1 slice bread, roughly torn, OR ½ cup breadcrumbs
1 small egg
1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon mustard

1 carrot, chopped
