Healthy Turkey & Lentil Meatloaf

One of the home-cooked, comfort food meals that I often think of when I think of ‘ketchup’ is…

MEATLOAF.

It may not be the fanciest, prettiest meal that you’ve ever eaten… but it’s satisfying and comforting. (sigh)

Along with the ground turkey, I used oatmeal, chopped red bell pepper, and lentils to “beef” up this meatloaf!!

You will be enjoying a SUPER ‘good-for-you’ meal that is also comforting and full of flavor at the same time!!!

If you’re not excited, well… YOU SHOULD BE!!
