Mama’s Meatloaf Recipe #HerenciaLeche


This is part of a sponsored collaboration with MilkPEP and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

I am such a meat and potatoes girl. Unfortunately my metabolism isn’t as fast as my appetite. The struggle of eating delicious meals is very real these days. On the flip side the gloriousness of eating home cooked meals means that I can control exactly what goes onto our plates and into our bodies.

Each week my husband and I collaborate on a meal plan. We both enjoy cooking and take turns almost every day with our favorite recipes. Tonight I am whipping up my mama’s meatloaf recipe. Meatloaf is one of the first things I learned how to make when I was growing up and surprisingly I haven’t shared it here. I love this dish because the ingredients are staple items I always have on hand.

One ingredient that is making the rounds in every meal is milk. With three growing boys milk should be the obvious choice, right?! Did you know that an 8 oz. glass of milk contains 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein? Milk is an affordable high-quality protein that supplies nutrients to our muscles, hair, bones and teeth. At about 25 cents a glass, I can easily use milk to make every snack and meal protein packed.

The US Dietary Guidelines recommend drinking three glasses of low-fat or fat-free milk each day to maintain a healthy weight.  There are only 80 calories in one 8 oz. glass of fat-free milk and 8 grams of protein. Milk is an easy way to give our family their daily essential nutrients. Milk contains  B vitamins for energy, protein for lean muscle, vitamin A for a healthy immune system and bone-building nutrients, including calcium and vitamin D.
