Tip #174: Fat Burning Meatloaf
I heard Jay Robb on a radio interview a few weeks back. Interesting guy. He is a chiropractor and bodybuilder out of Rowley, MA. I sent away for several of his books and will be sharing in upcoming tips.
I saw this recipe and thought I would try it out. Let me know what you think!
Jay's Mighty Meaty Fat Burning Meatloaf
1 1/2 lb. 7% lean ground sirloin
1 cup white onion (chopped)
1/2 cup green pepper (chopped)
1/2 cup celery (very finely chopped)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (chopped))
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves (washed, stems removed)
Small piece of fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl except for the ginger, cilantro leaves and one of the chopped tomatoes. Shape the meat into a loaf, place in a baking dish and bake in a 325 degree preheated oven for one hour. Remove from the oven, let cool and top with the remaining chopped tomato, grated ginger and cilantro leaves.
This is a low-carbohydrate, high protein meal that is rich in fiber, low in sodium, low in fat, low in calories, yet delicious! The fresh cilantro tastes heavenly on top and the ginger helps step up your metabolism so you can burn fat faster. Because this meat loaf steps up your metabolism, and is low in carbohydrates and calories, your body will burn fat readily as long as you accompany this meal with a vegetable dish or salad. Traditional meat loafs can contain tons of fat, and oatmeal which can inhibit the fat burning process due to an insulin response from consuming the oatmeal.
