A good old-fashioned meatloaf was a staple in our southern household growing up. Not only was it an easy dish for my mom to put together for the family, but it was SO full of flavor and absolutely filling (even for the guys in the house)!
So, I knew I would eventually need to put together a grain free (healthier) version for myself to enjoy.
I’ll be honest – my first few rounds tasted great, but the texture wasn’t holding together correctly (I still devoured it though lol!). I finally found the ‘secret’ ingredient to balance out the texture without compromising the flavor…. Ground Flaxseeds!
Not only do the flaxseeds help to balance out the texture, but they also provide some added fiber & nutrition to help boost metabolism and weight loss…. which is something you don’t get with regular meatloaf. WIN/WIN!
