beat it or eat it – meatloaf

Mmmmmmm, what’s better than some home cookin’? Comfort food to umm, comfort you! Roman loves meatloaf and I used to avoid making it, because it’s hard to find a recipe that’s good enough for your figure and good enough to eat. It’s usually loaded with fat and calories, so having it too often isn’t really an option if you’re trying to watch what you eat. Weighing in at 591 calories, 27.8g fat, and 10.5g saturated fat is definitely not going to help you at all! So, sadly, meatloaf was off the menu. That is until I found this recipe for BBQ meatloaf. Dare I say that I think it’s actually better than regular meatloaf.
