perfect meatloaf meal

Meatloaf. It’s so meat & potatoes midwest right? Well, this is not yo mama’s meatloaf. (Anybody watch that show?) This perfect meatloaf meal was inspired by a My Fit Foods meal (more on them soon) and I recreated it at home for a bunch of meals this week. I’m really trying to focus on recipes that are easy, family-friendly and don’t require “weird health foods” – the main purpose of this blog is to share ideas to make life healthier in an easy, approachable way. If you have family-favorites that you’d like a nutrition makeover for, let me know!

Lean turkey is the center of this meal, rounded out with sweet potatoes (and a pat of grass-fed butter) and steamed green beans. This meal is filling, healthy and pretty easy to pull together. The meatloaf takes an hour to bake, and while its in the oven you can bake, boil, or microwave the sweet potatoes and steam the green beans. The recipe makes 8 servings so depending on your appetite, you can freeze half of it for later like I did!

    This is a great revamped recipe! Back in my “meat-eating” days I used make meatloaf in a muffin pan. Lots of crispy bits and already preportioned serving sizes! Great for freezing too!

    I love your attitude towards creating healthy foods! I like to experiment, but it is annoying sometimes when recipes call for at least five ‘weird’ ingredients like flax meal, wheat germ, kefir, kombucha, etc. (I have no idea what I’m making). Sometimes I just want a healthy meal using good ol’ produce and lean meat.
