A quick, easy and healthy paleo meatloaf made with clean ingredients. Perfect for leftovers PLUS it’s husband and toddler-approved!
Meatloaf is one of those comfort meals that I could easily have one my weekly dinner rotation. I’m so happy to say that this meal is husband-approved as well as toddler-approved. My entire family loved it!! To simplicity my life I’m trying to only make dinners that I know myself, my husband and both of my daughters will enjoy. Gone are the days of me cooking 2 or 3 different dinners!
One of my favorite parts of this meal is that I have leftovers so dinner is taken care of for two nights in a row for the entire family. You could also double or triple the recipe and make a few meatloafs so you can freeze them for a later date. Having kids I’m all about meals I can quickly reheat for those crazy chaotic nights where I just don’t have time to cook.
Traditional meatloaf is made with regular flour, but this meatloaf recipe is gluten-free and paleo as I used coconut flour in place of regular flour. You can check out the recipe for all of the other clean ingredients used.
Speaking of clean ingredients – I’m VERY selective when it comes to which meat I consume, and just as important what meat my kids consume. I always opt for grass-fed beef and pasture-raised meat. All meat should be free of antibiotics, growth hormones and GMOs.
I’m so grateful that I recently discovered Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative. They’re a group of small-scale family farmers who formed to transform the way meat is produced and consumed across the USA. Their mission is to provide an easy way for consumers to get access to nutritious, delicious, pasture-raised meat, which can be conveniently ordered online and delivered from their farm to your table.
Grass Roots provides the best quality and most nutritious meat in a manner that is humane, transparent, sustainable and fair. Raising small batches of chickens, pigs and cattle on 100% fresh pasture, their happy animals live outdoors and are free of antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides and GMOs. Since their animals live outdoors they get lots of exercise, fresh air, sunshine, and fresh pasture every day. As a result, their meats are higher in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.
Grass Roots implements truly innovative practices, such as agricultural methods that regenerate the soil which replenishes the nutrients in the soil instead of depleting them. Their rotational grazing practices sequester carbon—improving the environment and slowing climate change.
Grass Roots is both the farmer and the butcher. Also, they pay farmers fairly so they can continue to raise meat the right way. They’re the first and only meat producer in the U.S. using blockchain technology to track products from farm to plate. This is such an important practice.
Since I’m such a fan of this company I want all of you to be able to try it! I’m so happy that I was able to get a $50 off offer for you guys!! This will be off your first box of $125 using code LEAHSPLATE I hope you enjoy the convenience of having the highest quality meat shipped straight to your doorstep! I will definitely continue to get my meat this way going forward – from a company I believe in, trust, and want to continue to support.A #paleo #meatloaf made with clean ingredients.
