Turkey Loaf

Last night, for dinner, we enjoyed a Turkey Meatloaf made with a recipe taken from The Fast Metabolism Diet Cookbook.  You would think that Phase 2 would be the easiest phase.  Meat and veggies, how hard is that?  But you are very limited on any other igredients.  No healthy fats and no grains.  Your fruits are very limited and many of our favorite veggies are not included on the list.  So I find myself turning to the cookbook most often during Phase 2 so I am not eating grilled meat with a side of veggies every Wednesday and Thursday.

This meatloaf was pretty tasty and I would enjoy it even more during the other phases when I could enjoy it with a Sweet Potato on the side.  I love having Sweet Potatoes with my Meatloaf.  It is an easy meal to throw together and leaves plenty of leftovers for lunch during the week as it can be eaten in every phase of the Fast Metabolism Diet.
