Craving a hearty dish to ward off the January blues? Rely on our Health-e-Recipe for Terrific Turkey Meatloaf for a tasty and healthy version of this favorite comfort food.
Onion and mushrooms sautéed in olive oil add cancer-preventive phytochemicals and fiber to ground turkey, a healthier choice of animal protein than ground beef (especially the leanest 7% fat kind). Worcester sauce and thyme season the meat, then egg and breadcrumbs create the perfect texture. Tomato paste and ketchup add lycopene, a phytochemical that research shows may help to prevent prostate cancer.
For only 238 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, you get a substantial 30 grams of protein. This yummy entrée goes beautifully with mashed sweet potatoes and a steamed leafy garlicky greens. Round out your plate (and fit the New American Plate model) with a whole-grain roll, and you’ll be ready for whatever winter weather challenges that come your way!
