Comfort food the light way

I got this recipe for healthy meatloaf in a P90X Beachbody email and had to share it with you. It has 24 grams of protein per serving and is loaded with healthy veggies. I made a few substitutions (I cut the recipe in half, used a mixture of lean ground beef and turkey, and swapped in apples for the celery). It’s great with a green salad for dinner!


1 1/2 lbs. extra-lean ground beef or ground turkey breast

2 egg whites

1/2 tsp. chopped garlic

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

3/4 cup finely chopped celery

1/2 cup unsweetened tomato sauce

1 cup rolled oats

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp. dried parsley

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with wooden spoons or hands. Place on cutting board or waxed paper and shape into loaf, then place in loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour. Depending on the shape and thickness of the loaf, it may need to cook for slightly longer. Serves 6.
