Turkey and Zucchini Mini Meat Loafs

Turkey and Zucchini Mini Meat Loafs

I decided to make cute little meat loafs (did I just call meat loaf cute?) to cater to the on-the-go type who doesn’t want a heavy or crazy lunch to take to work. These are simple to make, tastes delicious, and can fit in your lunch box (great for kids, too!). The zucchini makes the loaf extra moist without taking away the flavors of the meat. You can use beef or turkey. Oh, and I use these silicon meat loaf molds from Amazon.

Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies (2 ways!)

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies (2 ways!)

I started using peanut butter more in my baking because 1. I’m obsessed with it and if I have a jar handy in my house, I will eat the whole thing. 2. It adds a moist/creamy texture to a lot of baked goods. I actually never made homemade peanut butter cookies before until now. Weird, I know. First recipe is for a more crumbly, harder cookie and the second recipe is for all you chewy-only cookie lovers. Let me know if you try one of these out, or both!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Loaf

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Loaf

About a year ago, I was eating a pretty strict Paleo diet. For those of you not familiar with the Paleo trend, it consists of meat, fish, tons of greens, some fruits, healthy fats and oils like avocado, coconut and olive oil, nuts, and seeds. It eliminates all dairy, legumes, and grains. Peanut butter, as you know, is not a nut. Its a legume..and can also be inflammatory to most people and a huge allergen. However, for those of us that don’t have a reaction to the deliciousness of PB, I would suggest adding it back to your diet. If you are going Paleo for health reasons, then that is totally fine..but I promise you, you will miss the creamy, gooey, smooth, “nutty” taste haha. I totally started incorporating more PB into my diet as a great source of protein. I would stick to organic and the less chemicals in the jar, the better. But you knew that already 😉
