Meatloaf seems to have gotten itself a bad name in the past. I mean I guess it’s kind of legitimate seeing as it’s not the prettiest of meals is it? I struggled to make it look presentable for a photo let me tell you. But I had to share it.
I found this recipe back in 2011 when I was doing the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. I signed up for a round of the program after bringing back quite a bit of excess baggage (read: I ate waaaay too much) after Will and my 5-week European vacation.
While I loved the program and got back to my pre-trip weight, some of the meals I thought were a little light-on and I nearly always added a bit of rice or some potato to fill us both up. Don’t get me wrong, they were all yummy and actually expanded my eating repertoire quite significantly, I just need carbs.
The same was the case with this delicious low-calorie beef and vegetable meatloaf. It’s packed with goodness and flavour but served with just a side salad, it ain’t enough for me (unless I’m having it as a light lunch).
I always serve it with some homemade wedges or baked potato along with the salad or usually steamed vegetables. It’s a great one to sneak some extra veges into kids too, not that I can get my little man to eat it. One day. One day he’ll eat all the food I make for him right? Sorry I was so fussy Mum!
I digress – back to meatloaf – it freezes really well too. Just slice into portions, and freeze either in a ziplock bag with some baking paper between each piece or wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Enjoy!
