Healthy {Paleo Friendly} Meatloaf

Hi y'all!

Remember last week when I was talking about trying to eat healthier? I decided I wanted to try to eat "cleaner" and so I searched Paleo friendly meals and came across this meatloaf recipe.

I don't like meatloaf so I was hesitant to try it, but it was full of veggies so I talked myself, and Garrett, into trying it. You know what? It wasn't half bad! I think Garrett liked it a little more than I did, but for me to like something with veggies in it was a big deal!

You will need:

2 Lb Extra Lean Ground Beef
*2 Red Onions, finely chopped
*4 Garlic Cloves, minced
*1/2 Bell Pepper, chopped
*1/2 Cup Cilantro, chopped
*1/2 Cup Parsley, chopped
2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Pepper
3 Eggs, beaten
2 T Flaxseed Oil {I used vegetable oil}

*I don't like chunky veggies in my food so I added all of the ingredients with the * to the blender, and blended them up completely. That way I still got the veggies but without the chunks. If you don't mind chunky veggies you can skip this step!

What to do:

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Spread evenly in an 81/2 by 11 baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. 

I added brown gravy to mine because I needed a little salt, but you don't have to. {It's better with it though!}

I liked this recipe because it was meaty and hearty but without the guilt and I was getting my veggies! 

Enjoy! : )


  1. I'm so excited! I've been looking for a paleo meatloaf.

  2. Meatloaf is my favorite! I can't believe you don't like it. Every time I eat it I think of The Christmas Story, and "show me how the little piggies eat"! Haha glad you enjoyed your veggies!!

  3. Baby steps! Good job and looks good. I can't tell by the ingredients what made the sauce on top.

  4. That looks and sounds delicious! I'm going to have to give this a try.

  5. This looks so good! I loooooooove meatloaf. And you, duh.

  6. I'm not crazy about meatloaf, but I have done this same kind of thing with burgers before. I will shred up zucchini or squash really fine and mix it with the meat. No one knows it is there!

  7. This does look really good! When you told me about it I didn't know if I'd like it but by the pictures it actually looks yummy! I love your white plates too :) so pretty and chic!!

  8. This sounds fabulous! I really love meatloaf!
