Beautifully human...Beautifully me!
I love meatloaf it is one of my favorite foods that is the easiest and quick meals a person can make. One of the healthy suggestions I would like to make is to substitute the beef for a more lean meat, for example, I prefer to use ground turkey. I love to make a Mexican style meatloaf because Mexican food is one of my many favorite foods to eat! Here is a favorite recipe from Prevention.Com! 

Enjoy! :-) 

Mexican Turkey Meatloaf

I like this recipe because although ground turkey tends to be very dry and flavorless, the salsa keeps it moist and tasty. I don't miss the more fattening beef version.


Serves:  Prep: 15min|Cook: 1hr 0min |Total: 1hr 15min 

·         1 1/2 cup chunky medium salsa

·         1 egg white

·         1 pound ground turkey breast

·         1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

·         1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

·         1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar or soy cheese alternative

·         5 black olives, finely chopped

·         3 scallions, finely chopped



Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.


In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of the salsa and the egg. Add the turkey and mix in by hand. Add 1 cup of the oats, mixing in by hand. Add up to 1/2 cup more oats if needed to reach desired consistency. Place in the prepared loaf pan (it will be a little messy), allowing 1/2" of space along the side of the pan. Sprinkle with the pepper. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup salsa.


Bake for 50 minutes. Top with the cheese, olives, and scallions. Bake for 10 minutes longer, or until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F and the turkey is no longer pink.
