I first saw this recipe in one of my favourite food blogs called Well Nourished. I love it not only because it’s super easy to make and looks incredible but it can be made in advance and re-heated – about 30 minutes in a medium oven should do it. It also packs an incredible nutritional punch and it is loaded with flavour. I have changed the recipe a little and have made it totally paleo and have snuck in some extra omega 3 fatty acids for the brain by using flaxseeds instead of grains to give body to the loaf. I’ve also added extra variety of vegetables and included a little more sweetness with tomatoes and apples to appeal to the really little people. I used the root veg I had in my veg box but you can play around with what you have. The bacon I have used is nitrate free from Waitrose. The meatloaf is delicious as a main meal or if you have any leftover then you can enjoy it as a snack, either hot or cold. Any leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
