Here’s a little spin on one of my favorite quick meals! This Healthy Fajita Meatloaf recipe is not just quick but low in fat, delicious, and PACKED with protein!

Here is the recipe:

  • 2 Pounds (32 Ounces) 97% Lean Ground Beef or Turkey
  • 2 Large Eggs (or 4 Large Egg Whites)
  • 1/2 Cup (40g) Rolled Oats (or Wheat Germ)
  • 1.25 Ounces (35g) Low Sodium Fajita Seasoning Mix
  • 1/2 Cup (56g) Reduced Fat Mexican Blend Cheese
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Red Onion
  • 1 Yellow Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 10 Tablespoons (150g) Salsa

  • Saturated Fat: 12g
  • Sodium: 1298mg
  • Carbs: 79g

Calories in each piece (if you cut 8):

Chop up your Red Onion, Yellow Pepper, and Green Pepper. Add all of your ingredients into a large bowl and mix everything together. Take out at least a 9×5 pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and then add your mix in. Put your meatloaf into the oven on 350°F/176°C for 60:00. After 60:00 take it out then top it with your Salsa before cutting it. Mouthgasm!

Tips:

  • Double or triple the recipe to have enough for the whole week!
  • You can store it in the fridge where it’ll usually last around 5-7 days!
  • Add spices, fresh herbs, or anything else you want to it!
