Meat Loaf Among Friends

Turkey Meat Loaf

Turkey Meat Loaf: Zen Beautifulness

What’s a little meat loaf among  friends? For me, it turned out to be part of a new style of collaborating, planning and dreaming. I declare 2013 as The Year of Living a Happy Life From the Heart. I know, right? Sounds sappy, but admit it – the idea makes your great big heart race just a little.

This week I met with two colleagues to integrate a coaching dimension into an amazing program they’ve designed called “A Piece of Cake  – Finally a Diet that Isn’t”. The focus is on a holistic approach to understanding our bodies, our cravings and our inner blueprint for health.  The program combines nutrition education, self discovery and meditation, and personal coaching. It is all about real food, authentic connection and achieving health goals with grace and ease.

So, how did our meeting go? (And what about the MEAT LOAF? you cry. I’m getting there.) First, we met and took a morning yoga class together, followed by a lunch meeting at Val’s beautiful home where she served up this delicious, nutritious turkey meat loaf. So yummy. So simple.

  • 1 pound ground turkey (or ground chicken)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 Tbsp chopped parsley
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Mix all ingredients except broth. Form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased loaf pan. Pour broth over top and bake for 1 hour. When finished, cut into slices and pour the juices over the meatloaf.

For an extra flourish, Val served this with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.

I’m thinking of ways to include it in all my meetings!


If you are in the Lower Mainland area  of B.C., there is a Piece of Cake Introductory Session tomorrow! Program starts February 19-2013
