Meatloaf was a staple in my house growing up, which we enjoyed on a regular basis. I can remember eating slice after slice, always wanting just a bit more. Perhaps the only reason I would spare some of the loaf would be to leave some for the next day to be enjoyed as leftovers. This meatloaf brings back fond memories of “Mom’s meatloaf” . . . good luck leaving any to be enjoyed the next day, though!
Ok, so I must admit I am very proud of this whole post. The recipe was amazing and I feel like my photos came out excellent. This meal was honestly made up from what I had in my fridge and freezer at the time. I love meatloaf, I mean who doesn’t? Meatloaf screams ‘Merica…topped off with sweet taters and ya’ got one patriotic meal. This is another one skillet meal with little mess and after a little prep-work it basically cooks itself.
When you go to take out the meatloaf after about 30 minutes to place the sweet potatoes on top, you may want to drain some of the fat out of the skillet. Also take the temperature to get an idea of how much longer you will need to cook it. You will want to cook the mixture to an internal temperature of 160ºF because of the ground pork. I hope you really enjoy this one, I did and it is even better for leftovers which means it is perfect for meal prepping for the week. Remember to scream “Ma! the meatloaf!”
An Italian classic made paleo! Even the word “cacciatore” is very primal. It means “hunter” in Italian. Chicken cacciatore basically tells you it’s paleo right in the title. How could you go wrong? This meal is delicious enough to eat on its own, but you may also serve it with spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. It tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen.
If you've never tried grilling turkey drumsticks, you're missing out! These big, juicy cuts are perfect for grilling. Keep the flame low, and these babies will come out perfectly tender with a nice crisp skin.
Lemon curd is one of my favorite sweet treats. That’s why it found its way between the layers of our wedding cake, and it was perfect for a hot August wedding. Lemon curd adds a fresh, sweet, and tangy flavor to baked goods. It’s fantastic piped into cupcakes or simply drizzled over fresh berries.
Having a Moscow Mule says ‘summertime’ to me. This particular drink was popular during the 1950s and has experienced a resurgence in recent years. Like many others, I love the refreshing combination of ginger beer and lime juice. If you want to experiment with our Ginger Beer recipe (pg 288 in our new book, Make It Paleo 2 - available for preorder now on Amazon), this is a great way to fully test it out when the book arrives. My favorite vodka brand to use is Three Hunters Vodka, a Paleo-friendly version of the spirit distilled from grapes and blueberries.
