(Paleo) Meatloaf: A Classic

1 Comment


Meatloaf… it’s a classic. I don’t remember the last time I ate it but it’s packed with protein and meat. And I like meat so I wanted to make some ‘loaf for this week. And I must say, it is more delicious then I remember. Maybe that’s just because I’m such an excellent cook ;). Hey sometimes I gotta toot my own horn… even if it’s not worth tooting. But I think this is worth it.



1 lbs. ground buffalo

1 lbs. ground turkey

1 onion- finely chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

2 eggs

3 tbs. spicy brown mustard

1 can tomato paste (the small/medium can… 14 oz? I forgot to look before throwing it away! I think that is right)-half for in the ‘loaf, half for the top

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

2 tbs. coconut aminos

Nutritional yeast


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix everything together except the nutritional yeast. Only use half the can of tomato paste!

Spray/oil a baking loaf pan then place your meat mixture into it. Spread the remainder of your tomato paste on top (or as much as you want, maybe you don’t want a whole half can on top) and sprinkle with nutritional yeast. Be generous :).

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Remove from oven, let cool, then be starving for dinner and stuff your face with a giant piece. Trust me, it will satisfy.

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
