This veggie packed Turkey Meatloaf is moist and delicious, and so good for you! You won’t miss beef with this one.
I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. I lead a good life, no, a great life, but sometimes it feels like too much that I don’t want. Too much to do, too much to feel, too much that I didn’t ask for. The overwhelmed feeling comes and goes and, not surprisingly, it gets easier to bare the more I pray.
My husband and I are in a transitional period that has us living with his parents (I seriously hit the jackpot with the kindest, most generous in-laws EVER) and while it’s a huge blessing in so many areas, it’s still hard to raise your kids in someone else’s house, and it’s hard feeling stuck in limbo while you are building your family and your career. But, I do believe that God has placed us here for a reason, and I will not let this time go to waist. I will use it to grow in my relationship with Him and as the person He created me to be. I will breathe and look to Him in those overwhelming moments, and I will find peace in knowing that we are okay, and we will continue to be.
Meals like this are another way I cope with being overwhelmed. It’s healthy, delicious, and really really easy to put together. I even use granulated garlic so that I don’t have to chop any. I mean, I LOVE garlic, but it is kind of a pain to cut up. It’s sticky and you need to peel the cloves and sometimes it’s like, enough already! Sometimes I just don’t want to be sticky or smell like garlic. Does anyone feel me on that?
Onion, shredded carrot and shredded zucchini make this Healthy Turkey Meatloaf super moist. There’s only one cup of panko to two pounds of ground turkey, so there is really not much bread in it, either.
Panko is a light and flaky Japanese breadcrumb and is my go-to breadcrumb over the traditional kind both your and my moms used. It’s very crispy and the flakes kind of just sit on top of each other without settling much, so you are using less mass in one cup of panko than you would be with one cup of a regular breadcrumb.
I hope you give this Healthy Turkey Meatloaf a shot. Please let me know what you think when you do! I like to dip mine in equal parts ketchup and Dijon mustard. Yum!
