Why is eating Low Carb better for you?
When you consume carbohydrates, they are converted into simple sugars known as glucose in your bloodstream. They are your main fuel source. Without sufficient carbs available as fuel, your body will start burning fat to keep you moving. Basically lowering your Carb intake will make it easier to burn fat and lose weight.
Is this Low Carb Turkey Meatloaf Keto Friendly?
It can be if you leave out the Quinoa Blend, swap the Onion for Scallions and make your own keto-friendly, low-carb Sweet Chili Sauce.

- ½ Cup of Cooked Quinoa - I have a 1 Minute Instant Pot Quinoa Recipe click here to see it.
- 1 Zucchini Shredded
- 4 Sliced Mushrooms
- 2 Egg Whites
- 1 Small Red Onion, finely chopped
- 1 Tablespoon of Chopped Parsley
- 1 Teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
- ¼ Cup of Chili Sauce if you like it Spicy or Ketchup if you like it mild
- ½ Teaspoon of Salt
- ½ Teaspoon of Black Pepper
- 1 Lb of Ground Turkey Breast
1: Cook your Quinoa according to the package directions, or go to my One Minute Instant Pot Quinoa Recipe
2: While your Quinoa is cooking, preheat the oven to 375 Degrees F. Line the bottom of your baking pan with parchment paper.
3: Take your Zucchini and chop into small 2 inch chunks and place in your Mini Ninja Kitchen Chopper and pulse to create nicely shredded Zucchini. If you do not own a small kitchen chopper use a hand grater to shred the Zucchini. Once the Zucchini is shredded place in a bowl and press a paper towel on top of the Zucchini to absorb the excess moisture, you may have to use a couple of paper towels until it is fairly dry.
4: Take you Red Onion and add that to your kitchen Chopper and pulse until diced finely. If you do not have a kitchen chopper you can dice with a sharp knife.
5: In a large bowl combine your Zucchini, Onion, Mushrooms, Egg Whites, Parsley, Italian Seasoning, Chili Sauce, Salt, Pepper, Turkey and ½ Cup of Cooked Quinoa and mix well.
6: Transfer the mixture to your Baking Pan; shape into a 5x11 Loaf. Brush a little extra Chili Sauce over the top of the Loaf.
7: Bake uncovered for 50-55 minutes on the center rack
8: Remove when done cooking and let cool for 10 minutes
9: Cut into 6 slices and serve. Yum!
