I'm on the Atkins diet, so I follow a lot of low fat/no carb dishes. These are ones I make myself, ... trial and error. This was a success. My family loves this Italian version of a meat loaf that I make with ground turkey. Calories, fat and cholesterol wre reduced by: Using egg whites instead of a whole egg Replacing ground beef with ground turkey breast Using shredded apples to add moisture that is lost by eliminating the beef fat Using a reduced-fat spaghetti sauce. 445 calories per serving before, 227 after.

Is there such a thing as Skinny meatloaf?
If you haven't tried my skinny meatloaf yet, I think you're going to love it! It's low in calories, very moist, and has a divinely rich sweet ketchup glaze. It’s a whole lot skinnier than most meatloaf recipes because I’m using extra lean ground beef, homemade whole wheat bread crumbs, and egg whites.
Where to buy lean ground beef for meatloaf?
Happily, most supermarkets sell lean ground beef. I used the 96% lean ground beef from Trader Joe’s. While the meatloaf is in the oven make a yummy potato side dish.
