Vegetarian “Meatloaf”

If you’re going meatless, you can still enjoy the satisfying comfort of a simple meatloaf or, in this case nut loaf, courtesy of Nutrition Stripped. Replacing the beef with nuts and seeds means you’ll get 10 grams of fiber, 18 grams of protein and only 3 grams of saturated fat in less than 400 calories per serving.
