Turkey Meatloaf

So I have never been a fan of meatloaf. In fact, I can't even remember the last time I had some. But, when I found this recipe for 21 Day Fix Extreme I decided I would give it a try. My husband loves meatloaf and he was very grateful that I actually put this on the menu this week!

healthy, clean eating, 21 day fix approved

2 lbs         lean ground turkey
1 cup        all-natural mild salsa
1 cup        cooked quinoa, cooled
2               large eggs
3 cloves    garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp         sea salt (himalayan or celtic)
                Ground black pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Combine turkey, salsa, quinoa, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl; mix well by hand or with a spatula
3. Shape mixture into shape of a loaf and place on ungreased 13 x 9 baking pan.
4. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until center is no longer pink and meat is cooked through.
5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
6. Cut evenly into 8 pieces.

For all you 21 Day Fixers, 1 serving (1/8 loaf) is 1 red (protein), 1/2 purple (fruit), 1/2 yellow (quinoa).

You can even freeze the individual slices for future meals!
