One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to cook more, slash branch out with cooking. I’d say 75% of the meals I currently make for Michael and me are crockpot meals. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE the crockpot and think it’s a great way to eat at home, save money, and time. And have tons of leftovers. But this year I really want to cook more – and learn more about food prep, knife skills, and just the kitchen in general.
As I mentioned in my last post, I started the Advocare 24-day challenge yesterday, so I needed to make a clean meal that would be challenge friendly (but also husband-friendly). This clean turkey meatloaf is packed with protein (hello lean ground turkey), but also veggies (onions, bell pepper, and shredded carrots). I’m not a huge meatloaf fan but this was surprisingly really yummy, super easy, and very filling! I had my turkey meatloaf with steamed broccoli – Michael had broccoli and Mac & Cheese! But, this turkey meatloaf has been husband approved 🙂
Clean turkey meatloaf
- 1 –1.5 lb 99% Fat Free Ground Turkey
- 1 egg OR 2 egg whites
- ½ cup tomato sauce (No Sugar Added)
- ¼ cup shredded carrots
- ½ cup chopped red/white onion
- ½ cup Old Fashioned Oats
- ½ cup chopped bell pepper (any color green, yellow, orange or red)
- Garlic powder + Basil + Fresh cracked pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together, except for tomato sauce. Lightly grease a loaf pan with no fat/no calorie cooking spray. Place meat mixture in the loaf pan and top with tomato sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with steamed broccoli or any veggie of your choice!
