The fresh ketchup drizzle acts as the exclamation point on this bold dish that is sure to score you some major points in the kitchen.

If you’d like, you can make this paleo meatloaf ahead of time and freeze it to make your future life easier.

Let’s Talk About Paleo Bacon

Yep, it’s absolutely delicious. But I’m pretty sure you already know that…

But there are still differences from bacon to bacon.

In fact, most of the bacon you buy in the store is loaded with sugar!

So, for a sugar-free bacon option that’s Paleo and Whole30 approved, check out US Wellness Meat’s bacon here…it’s only got 2 ingredients but is still absolutely delicious.

What about Ketchup?

Again, most ketchup you purchase in the store will be loaded with corn syrup, unfortunately.

While, pretty much all ketchup is going to have some form of sugar in them, we suggest you try to make your Paleo ketchup instead.

Not only do you get to control the ingredients in the ketchup, but it also means you won’t eat quite as much of it…(which then decreases your overall sugar consumption).

Give this easy and flavorful Paleo ketchup recipe a try!
