Ever just CRAVE meatloaf like you used to have growing up?  I remember my grandma making meatloaf as I was growing up~ and although it wasn't always turkey, it was juicy, and yummy as ever!!  Sometimes I just find myself craving meatloaf!!!  Usually turkey since it agrees with my stomach more, and it's a bit more "clean" and "lean" if you know what I mean!!!! :) 

Here's the recipe I've come up with for THIS BEAUTY!!! It's a modified version of Sagi's Power Turkey Meatloaf from the Body Beast Nutrition Guide!! I LOVE the guides that all of Beachbody's programs come with... but what I love more, is just having a foundation for a recipe, and then RUNNING WITH IT!!

I LOVE CHEESEY POTATOES!!! They're ABSOLUTELY A PAST TIME OF MINE!! They might even me one more so than meatloaf!!! <3 <3 I remember living with my grandma going up, being a young teenager, and boiling potatoes, then SMOTHERING THEM WITH BUTTER AND CHEESE!!! This is a habit I took on as I got older too!! I'd use AMERICAN CHEESE TOO!! Did you know that, that's not even CHEESE?! In fact... It needs to be labeled as "processed cheese," "cheese product," "American slices," or "American Singles...." HOW GROSS! -_-

SO~ when choosing a "cheese," be sure to choose a REAL cheese.. like cheddar!! ALOS~ be cautious of hormones, and try for a cheese from Grass-fed cows!!
