Cooking Tip

This recipe can be a good way of using leftover cooked rice by mixing into the meatloaf. Serving the meatloaves with a side of roasted potato or sweet potato can increase the carbohydrate content. Ground turkey could be substituted as a leaner protein source. Use this recipe during meal prep and enjoy throughout the week.

Performance Fact

Lean beef is an excellent source of protein, iron (used for oxygen transport) and zinc. Grass-fed beef has a higher concentration of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which early research suggests might play a role in blood glucose and body weight control, as well as being potentially anti-inflammatory.
