Turkey Meatloaf and Roasted Kale

We’ve been in love with Rachael Ray’s turkey meatloaf for a few years now. We’ve recently adapted it to be gluten and dairy free and to include one of our favorite leafy greens, kale.

Kale is an excellent source of vitamins A, C and E, as well as fiber, and is packed with antioxidants and beta-carotene. Want another reason to nosh on some kale? The vitamin C and beta-carotene in kale are essential for healthy, glowing skin. Eat your way beautiful, inside and out!
