This recipe is nutrient dense, Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) friendly, lower carb, grain free, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free, nightshade free, paleo, primal, Whole30 compliant, & keto friendly!

What Makes this High-Vibing Food?

  • First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!

  • You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!

  • This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • Contains iron, which is supportive for your root chakra.

  • Contains zinc, which is needed for thousands of chemical reactions in your body involving protein, so it is also supportive to the root chakra.

  • Contains red colored foods. Red vibrates at about the same frequency as the root chakra. So, eating red foods helps to maintain the proper root chakra frequency.

  • This recipe is full of healthy fats and/or oils, which supports the sacral chakra.

  • Contains yellow/tan/golden colored foods, which help raise the body’s frequency to that of the solar plexus, helping to balance it.


A Short Note on Swaps or Ingredients:

*While I cannot guarantee that using these swaps will yield the same flavors I have create in this recipe, these swaps should generally work well! *

  • Use KC Naturals Imitation Ketchup if you're sensitive to nightshades or on the strict phase of the AIP. Feel free to swap with a low sugar or sugar free organic tomato based ketchup if you're not sensitive to nightshades or in the strict phase of the AIP.

  • Chicken livers are extremely nutrient dense and full of vitamins and minerals. I encourage you to give this super food a chance in the recipe before deciding you don't like it :o)

  • The bacon I use is sugar free, gluten free, nitrate/nitrite free and uncured. This is the only type of bacon I will use. I encourage you to at least find bacon that is uncured, nitrate/nitrite free.

  • Pork panko is a delicious gluten free alternative to gluten filled bread panko. This is great to use if you're avoiding gluten/grains or eating lower carb. It is made from fried pork skins so be aware that it is an animal product. You could swap this for another gluten free panko alternative but I cannot promise it will be as delicious!


Equipment Needed to Create this Recipe:

  • stand mixer

  • food processor or high-powered blender (I use my KitchAide or my Vitamix)

  • silicon spatula

  • mini loaf tin (or one large loaf tin)

  • measuring cups/spoons

 


Mini Nightshade Free, Hidden Liver Meatloaves

(gluten free & AIP/paleo)

Prep time: 15-20 minutes Cook time: 50-60 minutes Yield: 8 mini meatloaves

Ingredients: 

  • 1 lb. ground beef

  • 1 lb. organic chicken livers, ground

  • 1.5 oz. of pork panko

  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp. cassava flour

  • 1.5 tbsp. KC Naturals Imitation Ketchup

  • ½ onion, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1-2 tbsp. avocado oil

  • 1 tsp. garlic granules

  • 1 tsp. dried parsley

  • 1 tsp. sea salt

  • ¼ cup KC Naturals Imitation Ketchup, for the tops

  • 6 slices of bacon, cooked & crumbled into bits


How to Create this Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. 

  2. In a large skillet, over medium heat, add 1-2 tbsp. of avocado oil and then add the onions and cook until translucent. Next, add the garlic and cook for one more minute. Then, remove the onions from the skillet and add them to the large bowl of a stand mixer. 

  3. Next, add the ground beef, ground liver, cassava flour, 3 tbsp. KC ketchup, garlic granules, sea salt, and ½ a package of pork panko to the stand mixer bowl (Note: if you don’t have a stand mixer you can do this by hand in a large bowl).

  4. In the stand mixer with the hook attachment, gently mix until incorporated (on the lowest speed), being careful not over mix as this will lead to a tougher texture. 

  5. Once mixed, transfer the mixture into greased mini loaf pans ( I just used avocado oil to grease them, but bacon fat, tallow, or palm shortening would work as well) and bake for 20 minutes. Then, remove from oven, spreading the ketchup over the tops. Placed back into the oven and cook for 30 to 35 additional minutes, until thoroughly cooked through the center. 

  6. While the meatloaf is cooking in the oven, cook the bacon and then chop it into bits. 

  7. Once the meatloaves are cooked, remove them from the oven and sprinkle the tops with the bacon bits. Let them rest for 10 minutes before trying to remove them from the molds. 


* NOTES:

  • To make ground liver: start by adding the livers to a food processor or high-powered blender and process until ground. Depending on your equipment, this could take 30 seconds- 2 minutes.
