I just started THM last week, and the first dinner I decided to make was Meatloaf--one of my husband's childhood favorites. I was not raised eating meat so it was my first time cooking it, and I went back and forth between making Serene's recipe or Pearl's. In the end I decided to make a hybrid! I used 1 lb ground turkey meat, because that's what we usually use for tacos or burgers, and I added 2 eggs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, celery, Braggs, and a bit of sour cream. So after mixing a few ingredients from both recipes I decided to up the veggie content and added some steamed and blended broccoli, a handful of blended spinach, and a few finely chopped mushrooms. To finish it off I iced it with tomato paste and added a little bit of water around the loaf as it baked.
The result? VERY tasty! I loved the addition of the tomato paste because we would usually add ketchup but the paste made that unnecessary. The veggies blended very well--only note is that the spinach gave it a SLIGHT green tint, which didn't both us one bit All in all, it was a very yummy dinner and we had left overs for two days to munch on!

mandy140: I have a question about Whey Protein Powder. I read Serene's article on Whey, friend or foe? I checked Swanson's web site and there are so many Whey Powders there I can't find the one Serene recommended; the CFM. How do I know which it is? Thanks.

farmerblacks: I did THM for a few months and loved it. I got away from it when I had to have 2 surgeries in 6 weeks. I would like to get back to it, but now my husband has to be on a low sodium diet. Are there any THM families that also do low sodium?
