Day 4: MEATLOAF & Brussels Sprouts
I’m not sleeping well. I wake up every few hours because I feel overheated. I have also heard this is a symptom of transitioning into the paleo diet. One common explanation is that my metabolism is working faster, therefore raising my body temperature. I just need to adjust to being warmer and then I should resume sleeping peacefully through the night.
Meatloaf… Loaf of meat… It’s kind of strange to eat a loaf of meat. But, oh, how we love meatloaf! I am hoping to make meatloaf on a more regular basis, but I want to make different styles of meatloaf. Veggie infused and Italian are the two we came up with last night. I followed this recipe last night and it was delish.
As the recipe site suggested, we ate the meatloaf with Brussels sprouts. However, I am partial to my own sprouts recipe.
You will need:1lb Brussels Sprouts 1TBL Olive Oil Salt & Pepper to taste 1. Preheat oven to 400*. 2. Cut the root end off of each sprout. Peel off two or three layers of each sprout. 3. Cut the sprouts in half lengthwise. For some of the bigger sprouts, I quarter the pieces. 4. Lay on a baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. 5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, tossing every ten minutes. 6. Serve. Top with butter if you desire.
When I was a kid, I used to eat ketchup with meatloaf. Weird, huh? Do you eat any “weird” combinations?
