Paleo Meatloaf

I’m way behind on blogging… I have lots of pictures and no posts to show for it! Hopefully I can catch up this week!

This was my first time making meatloaf and it was pretty good! I loved the sauce more than anything else. I’ve never been a fan of meatloaf and haven’t eaten it in years, so I don’t even know what meatloaf is really supposed to taste like. This one is meaty and not at all dry or bready.

I followed Alton Brown’s meatloaf recipe pretty closely, just making a few paleo substitutions and omissions. I also only had 18oz of ground beef so I halved the recipe and ended up making two half mini-loaves. Instead of garlic flavored croutons, I used the same amount of almond flour. For the glaze, I used Organicsville ketchup, which is the most paleo-friendly ketchup I’ve managed to find so far. I skipped the honey since the ketchup is plenty sweet, but the lack of extra sugar probably kept my glaze from really glazing up. I also skipped the Worcestershire sauce and used a dash of tabasco as my hot sauce.

Just a quick post today, I have a pretty busy day ahead of me. I basically lost an entire day yesterday due to a single Zyrtec pill. When I switched to paleo, I stopped getting sick or having migraines, so I was able to cut out pretty much all pharmaceuticals… except for allergy meds for my seasonal allergies that started a year or two ago. I wonder if I’ve become extra sensitive to medications because this supposedly non-drowsy allergy pill totally knocked me out for about 24 hours. I slept 80% of the time. When I was awake, I was super out of it and my friend thought I was high on something after a phone conversation. Feeling much better today! No more allergy meds for me! Know of any natural remedies?
