Turkey Meatloaf

This content was last updated on February 26, 2020

A few healthy substitutions can turn this traditional comfort food into a nutritional powerhouse. The first step is to replace the typical beef or pork with lean ground turkey. Research has shown that limiting red meat to no more than 18 ounces (cooked) a week can be a beneficial part of a cancer-protective diet. Onion and cremini mushrooms add texture and variety to help you get more vegetables on your plate.
