Paleo Meatloaf (loaded with vegetables)

I have to admit that the thought of meatloaf kind of puts me off. What?! But paleo = loads of meat consumption! Yea, but no. I do enjoy good quality meat that comes from animals that were treated humanely, but I do include a ridiculous amount of vegetables in our meals. 

Whilst pondering how to amp up my meatloaf, I decided that herbs and spices wouldn't be enough this time. It needed oompth, and that oompth would come in the form of vegetables. Healthy, delicious vegetables! 

The end result was a delicious concoction of meat and vegetables that was absolutely easy to get together! You see, now that is definitely an appeal of meatloaf - you mix the ingredients and pop it in the oven! How easy! So here it is, another one of my easy, healthy recipes
