Paleo Meatloaf

I have never had meatloaf before I made it this time. I was encouraged to start eating beef because of my anemia and my aunt said the best way to start was to incorporate it into a meatloaf. So, here it is. A turkey, beef meatloaf that is Paleo, easy, and delicious!

Paleo Meatloaf
Makes 1 meatloaf

Ingredients: ground meat {turkey & beef}, eggs, almond flour, coconut flour, onion, kale, bell peppers, chili powder, salt, garlic cloves, oregano, cayenne, paprika, cumin, chili powder, and olive oil

First saute in a skillet with olive oil:
• 1/2 an onion finely chopped 
• 1 bell pepper finely chopped

Saute for approx. 10 minutes on medium low

Add to skillet:
• 1-2 cups of finely chopped kale
• 3 finely chopped garlic cloves
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp oregano
• 1 tsp smoked {or regular} paprika
• 1/2 tsp cayenne
• 1 tsp cumin
• 1 tsp chili powder

Mix all together and cook for a few minutes and then set aside

Mix together in a bowl:
• 2 lbs of ground meat {I used 1 lb turkey and 1 lb beef}
• 3 whisked eggs
• 1/4 cup almond flour
• 2 Tbsp coconut flour {or another 1/4 cup almond flour}

It is easiest to mix with your hands, but you can mix with a spoon if you would like. Don't need to mix too much, just enough to incorporate everything.

Add the veggies and spices to the ground meat mixture and mix together

Form the mixture into a loaf and place into a loaf pan. Spread ketchup over the top of the loaf to cover the top completely.

Place in the oven at 350 degrees for an hour and fifteen minutes. 

Let cool for 10 minutes and then enjoy! :)
