Since I have mentioned before we have been eating more healthy and trying different things with our meals. Well one of our favorite family meals  to make is meatloaf but I needed to make a more healthy alternative for us to eat.

Some of the things that makes this recipe more lean is that I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and whole wheat bread instead of saltine crackers and white bread like I would usually use. These changes to a family favorite went over well and worked for our family.

Here is the full Lean Meatloaf recipe:
