Turkey Meatloaf with Dried Cranberries and Tons of Veggies FREE Recipe

As some of you may already know, I'm on a 30-day nutritional cleanse program. I'm 10 days in, and haven't felt this good in years. Sleeping better than ever, better metal focus and clarity, better mood, more energy and I've already lost 7 pounds and 16"! Very exciting. CANNOT WAIT to see what my 30 day results are :) If you want information about it, please leave me a comment below with your email address and I'll get back to you personally.

This new lifestyle has definitely inspired me to cook more healthy that I usually do. And here is a wonderful recipe I developed with ground white meat turkey breast. I get if for about $2/pound at Costco. SO MUCH cheaper than the regular grocery store...

You can add just about anything you like to a meatloaf recipe. I was kind of inspired by Thanksgiving with this one. I added a box of StoveTop Cornbread Stuffing mix (to replace bread crumbs and eggs) and added Craisins (dried cranberries), and TONS of shredded veggies. I didn't want to have to saute anything first, so shredding makes the pieces small enough to cook completely while the turkey meatloaf is in the oven. Who doesn't like to omits steps and clean up? I KNOW I DO! This recipe makes 2 large loaves of turkey meatloaf. I wanted to have several meals ready to go without having to cook again this week :)
