Jamie Eason's LiveFit Recipes: Jamie's Monster Meatloaf

I take a classic comfort food, meatloaf, and make it fit for your diet. This is an important part of Phase 3 of my 12-week LiveFit Trainer.

One reason people shy away from eating healthy is that they fear that many of their favorite foods will be forever off-limits. In reality, you can often make those recipes healthier, rather than banishing them altogether.

Witness my monster meatloaf recipe. By using extra-lean ground turkey and egg whites, I keep the protein quotient high without adding a bunch of saturated fat.

So eat up, and feel free to share this recipe with your mother and other family members. They too will soon realize that comfort food can also be fitness fare - but still taste great!

This meatloaf was great! My family had some earlier this week. The leftovers tasted even better the next day after the flavor soaked in nice and good. The kids put a little extra ketchup (no high fructose corn syrup) on theirs of course. Thanks for this recipe.

she said 24 serving, so just make sure to cut it up evenly, 12 pcs. at the top and 12 pieces at the bottom, equals 24 pcs. Make them into small pcs, so that you end up with 24.

Sounds good ... besides the ketchup. Are peppers capsicum or chillies or what? Get confused over what peppers americans are reffering to to what because we name everything differently

Making this right as I write. Instead of the 9x13 dish I put the mixture in muffin tins for portion sizes. I think it will turn out great and I'll be able to freeze some of it too. thx for the great healthy recipe!

I made it and LOVED it. Great texture, especially considering that its extra lean turkey breast; not even remotely dry! I may even try topping it with a low sugar BBQ sauce next time... One con is that it seemed salty to me. Anyone else feel that this may be slightly high in sodium? Ill be adding 1/8c aminos in the future...

My pre-teen daughter and I tried this last night and I was skeptical that she'd like it because of the red bell peppers but since they and the onions/garlic somewhat reduced after cooking them in a light amount of extra virgin olive oil, they turned out great. After incorporating all of the ingredients together and placing it in my pyrex baking dish, it was fairly runny and I was certain it wouldn't bake well. Lo and behold, it came out perfect. After letting it cool for a few minutes, we both dug in. I took two squares and my daughter took one. I finished mine and took a third sqare as I really liked it. Surprisingly, my daughter grabbed a 2nd square and I just looked at her and she said "yeah, I like it". That's a HUGE statement from her in my book, lol. So, this will become a staple in my menu as I now have enough leftovers for several days at work. I wonder what other binding agents I can use instead of oats as I'm trying to follow a largely (but not completely) paleo eating plan.
