Mini Turkey meatloaves with a baked sweet potato & broccoli

 

Turkey meatloaf

I make these different each time. I decided to make smaller ones. I also make these into burgers. Though my recipe is different each time , depending what I have in the fridge.
ground turkey •onion•mushrooms•garlic•spinach • red pepper • grated zucchini •grated carrot• Mrs dash Italian seasoning •coconut oil

Diced/Mince veggies,
Mix all ingredients together
Form into burger, mini loaves, or make a big loaf.
Bake 350F until done.

If you make turkey meatloaf or burgers and they are dry for you the grated zucchini is great for keeping the turkey meatloaf/burgers moist.

Steam up some broccoli
Bake sweet potato, when done cut in half.
Sprinkle chili powder ,pepper, salt.
Put back in over in the broiler for a few minutes.

Chicken & tomatoes over zucchini pasta

chicken dinner

Season chicken with salt & pepper.
Cook chicken in pan with chicken broth. Just enough to cover the pan. You can add more if needed.

When done I like removing the chicken to cut into bite size pieces. I like using chicken tenders because they cook faster. I also do this after cooking because , then I don’t have to deal with raw chicken.

When you remove the chicken, place diced plum tomatoes into the pan, add more chicken broth if needed.

Add diced chicken back into pan, stir. I added a little bit more of chicken broth and parmesan cheese so I had a sauce.

Use your spiralizer to make zucchini noodles. If you don’t have one yet get it!! I love zucchini noodles. You can have them raw or I like putting them in a little bit of water just to make them a little tender.

Add zucchini noodle to pan, stir.

Plate & enjoy. You can add feta , mozzarella, or more parmesan cheese.

I enjoy all of these meals because you feel good eating them and they are really good.
