Directions

Meatloaf Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, ¼ cup ketchup, 1 tbsp Worcestershire, egg, onions, parsley, salt & pepper. If you like softer onions, you can also cook the onions prior to this step.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 tbsp ketchup and 2 tsp worcestershire sauce.
  4. Place meatloaf mixture in a loaf pan that has been lightly coated with olive oil spray.
  5. Spoon sauce over the meatloaf mixture and bake uncovered for 55-60 minutes.
  6. Remove the meatloaf from and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before slicing!

*Can substitute 97/3 for 99/1 Ground Turkey for a workout day meal (less fat), or go half and half!

*Can substitute bread crumbs for Quick Cooking Oats or 1 slice Ezekiel Toast (processed into crumbs).

 

Cauliflower Mash Directions:

  1. As the magic is happening in the oven, boil a medium pot of salted water. Add the cauliflower florets and cook for about 10-12 minutes until very tender. Drain and transfer to a food processor.
  2. Optional – In a lightly coated (using olive oil spray) saute pan, add garlic and saute for about 30 seconds, or until the garlic is golden. Then remove and transfer to food processor.
  3. Add almond milk, olive oil, nutritional yeast (optional), salt & pepper to food processor and puree until cauliflower is smooth. This should take a few minutes.
  4. Optional – Top your cauliflower mash with scallions!

*Can substitute almond milk for 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid used for boiling the cauliflower.

*Can substitute olive oil for 1 tbsp grass fed butter or ghee.
