Veggie Filled Healthy Meatloaf (Gluten Free/ Grain Free/ Paleo)

When the weather is colder, we usually look to warm comfort foods. Just because we were raised with processed foods, doesn’t mean that our comfort foods need to be processed:)

I know that when I was growing up, our meatloaf had tons of crushed crackers, onion soup mix (with a lot of sodium and chemicals in it) tomato soup and ketchup. This meatloaf is packed with extra veggies, so it’s healthified (is that even a word?) . Just remember that it still tastes great and is very satisfying!

    Sounds delicious :-) Meatloaf is not a common meal in the UK – so will be trying this – have you tried adding more veg? I’d be inclined to double all veg ingredients x

      Thanks Janice. No I have never tried it doubling the veggies. It may not stay together as well, but you can let me know how it goes.
