This is my healthy turkey meatloaf, spiced with some Thai curry spices to give it a new twist. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not convinced that meatloaf needs a new twist–I love meatloaf! It might be the stereotypical meal from the 1960s, but I’m still a fan of it today. The problem is, it tends to be high in fat. With this recipe, I wanted to make a dish that was low fat and something different than the standard meatloaf of my youth. My healthy turkey meatloaf recipe was born.
When doing Whole30, there aren’t really options for eating Chinese food from restaurants, even if you are careful. Soy sauce is in practically everything, a lot of foods are fried, and the sauces are sweetened. I missed not having Chinese food, and knew there had to be a way to make some of my favorite dishes Whole30 compliant. I made this Whole30 Kung Pao Chicken for a Whole30 Chinese New Year potluck, and this won best dish for the evening. It even won a bag of kale! What better award is there to win than a bag of kale? I made kale chips, and patted myself on the back while I ate them.
