Paleo Meatloaf with Shallot Gravy- AIP Option

As I’m writing this post, I’m suffering from the worst ear and sinus infection I’ve had in years.  My balance is completely off, making walking a very funny sight.  It’s too bad I finished off the last of my Paleo Meatloaf with Shallot Gravy a couple of days ago.  I could really go for some comfort food right now.

This recipe brings you all the flavor of the meatloaf you grew up eating, with the added veggies Mom was always trying to get you to eat.  It’s filled with kale and mushrooms for a taste you’ll love.  If you’re on the AIP, just leave out the egg and add 2 tablespoons filtered water.  Don’t like mushrooms? Sub in some onions.  It’s completely customizable!

I’m headed to the doctor’s office today.  Normally, I wouldn’t even bother to go, with an ear and sinus infection; but, I wanted to have some blood work done anyway.  If you receive my newsletter, you read about how important it is to listen to what your body is telling you. The day I wrote that, I was experiencing problems with my balance while doing my workout.  I also didn’t have the strength and endurance I usually have.  Little did I know at the time, I would wake up to this horrible infection.  Luckily, I paid attention to the clues my body was giving me.  I didn’t go overboard while working out when I just wasn’t feeling it.  Always listen to what your body is telling you.  When you tune into what your body is saying, you will know right away if something is just not right.  Then, you can treat yourself well.

As always, I wish you good health…..and, good food!

  1. I am so excited to see this! I will try it next week. The last paleo meatloaf I made was not very good. Maybe it was because I was trying to hide some liver in it – haha! Thank you so much for your recipes! All that I have tried have been great! Hope you feel much better soon!

    1. Thank you so much Fran! I think you’ll like this meatloaf recipe….no liver added! LOL! I’m so happy you’ve been enjoying my recipes. And, thanks for your concern. I’ve felt much better the last couple of days. That was the quickest recovery I’ve ever had!
