Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Recipe: Meatloaf



In my experience, clients that are in treatment for obesity, bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at my outpatient treatment center in Cincinnati.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

1 cup diced onion
1 cup mushrooms
garlic juice
bourbon smoked paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small mixing bowl, combine homemade ketchup and coconut crystals, set aside. This will be the sauce for the top of the meatloaf.

Lightly beat 1 egg into bowl. Add in ground beef, vegetables, hemp, garlic juice, paprika, garlic pepper, garlic salt. Toss as little as possible.
